2007 Vintage

In 2007, a dry, mild winter brought bud-break by mid-March and our vineyards ran 10-14 days ahead of normal for the entire season. However, a mild September allowed our vineyard crews to wait until October to harvest. We, along with winemaker Cary Gott, immediately knew the vintage was going to be something special. Throughout fermentation and barrel aging, the wine showed a classy elegance of floral and fruit. We were not alone in our high expectations of the vintage. The buzz started early among vintners and consumers alike and has not let up as Robert M. Parker pronounced this “the greatest vintage for Bordeaux varietals in Napa since 2001 and 2002.”

2007 Baconbrook Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-07-BB

Revealing the most opaque color of these offerings, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Baconbrook’s abundant notes of blue and black fruits, forest floor, graphite, and vanilla are followed by a tannic, rich, backward wine with undeniable minerality. It should turn out to be outstanding after 3-4 more years of bottle age. It will last 20+ years. 90-93 points Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate #186 Dec 2009

2007 Butterdragon Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-07-CS

For those who favor austerity and structure, with complexity and flavor. Tight, focused and concentrated, yet elegant, offering cedary oak, loamy earth, mineral, dried berry and currant flavors, with touches of wild berry and blueberry coming through on the finish. Plenty of ripe tannins provide traction. Best from 2012 through 2022. 93 points. Wine Spectator Magazine 11/15/10

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Butterdragon Hill possesses attractive, fleshy black currant, crushed rock, cedar, spice box, and tobacco leaf characteristics. This broad, savory, pure, moderately tannic 2007's overall impression is one of elegance, with a Bordeaux-like framework to the tannic structure. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. 90-92 points. Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate #186 Dec 2009
