Library Wine: 2007 Old Vine Cuvee

2007 Old Vine Cuvee

This past weekend, we dug deep into the cellar and pulled out a bottle of our 2007 Old Vine Cuvee. This was a special treat and provided a special treat to share with family while sitting around the fireplace sharing stories. What is Old Vine Cuvee? It seems a little strange, since you don't see "Old Vine Cuvee" on our labels anymore, but Old Vine Cuvee is actually the old name for our more well-known "Mysterium" red blend. This library wine has a special place in my heart since I particularly love the Mysterium wines, especially the current 2010 vintage.  

2007 was a great year of the Old Vine Cuvee, and the blend was similar to the 2009 Mysterium vintage with 48% Zinfandel, 39% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah, 5% Alicante Bouschet and 1% Black Malvasia. 

I'm hoping that I can dig out a few more bottles of this in the next few months, and at the same time, stash away a few bottles of the 2010 Mysterium to enjoy a couple years from now. 

Cheers and Happy New Year!

That was one of the best, and I still have one bottle left. We enjoyed the 2008 too. I'd better go down to the cellar to see if we have that '09 or '10 Mysterium. In order to hang onto and savor your wines, we don't open the box at our home address, or we'll drink them! Instead, we have our cellar at our Flathead Lake cabin, always a constant 55F, and try to forget what's in there for a while. Our trips to the lake, then, become very special. Cheers, Skohl, Hoist, Yammas.... whatever!
