Missing from the Napa report in issue #186, this gorgeous 2007 Syrah Mt. Veeder displays a dense purple color in addition to a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, raspberries, and cool black currants as well as power and richness allied to elegance and burgeoning complexity. Its texture, purity, full-bodied mouthfeel, ethereal style, impeccable precision, and overall high quality suggest it will provide plenty of pleasure for a decade or more. (RP)
Deep ruby. Crushed blueberry, plum and pepper on the nose, along with a tarry suggestion of creosote. Then rich, deep and large-scaled on the palate, offering more texture and depth than the 2008 but less complexity and lift today to its black fruit and incense flavors. Plenty of palate-coating fruit to buffer the tannins. Even more backward than the 2008. (ST)
Firm and intense, with a trim yet complex band of spicy currant, wild berry, mineral, sage and pebble. Very much a Northern Rhône-styled wine with its structure and minerality. Needs aeration. (JL)
