The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9.5% Petit Verdot) is one of the more remarkable bargains for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Like most vintages of Seavey (the 1990 and 1991 are still very young wines), it will require patience. Dense purple opaque to the rim, it reveals a stunning nose of burning embers, soy, blackberries, coffee, and cassis along with a hint of scorched earth. It is a true blockbuster, concentrated, massive Cabernet that should be forgotten for 5-10 years, and drunk over the following four decades. Seavey’s 2007s could be compared to some of the Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignons from the late 1960s and early 1970s. 96+ (RP)
Taut and focused, dry and savory, with a minerally graphite-slate edge that joins the dense blackberry, wild berry, anise and black licorice notes. Full-bodied and tightly wound, this is most impressive on the finish, where the flavors are long and pure. (JL)
(15.3% alcohol; includes 15% Petit Verdot): Good full ruby. Expressive ripe scents of plum, dark cherry, fresh blood, smoke and minerals. Very dense, plush and concentrated if not quite as fine-grained as some other recent vintages here, as the dark fruit, licorice, spice and mineral flavors are still a bit brooding. This classically dry wine is folded in on itself at present but should have a long life in bottle. Finishes with rising, palate-staining black fruit flavors and tannins that are serious but not dry.
