Review
"SINCE 1973, THIS TINY MOUNT VEEDER WINERY HAS BEEN MAKING SOME OF THE RICHEST, MOST DISTINCTIVE WINES IN THE NAPA VALLEY." JAMES LAUBE, WINE SPECTATOR

Rating
 0 points
Made in large-enough quantities to be widely available, as well as at a rare price point for the appellation, this is a bit of a find. Juicy in red-fruit tones yet supported by drying tannins, this is pleasurably perplexing, with a hint of mint on the nose. Full bodied, it finishes with tobacco and fig. Cellar through 2020.
A solid effort, firm, dense and rich, with loamy dark berry, cedar, anise and gravelly flavors, ending with gripping tannins. Drink now through 2024. 41,658 cases made. -JL

Wine maker notes
Our signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate Veeder Hills Vineyard. The elevation of this vineyard ranges from 600-1,120 feet, and its steep slopes and sedimentary clay and shale soils restrict root growth, resulting in Mount Veeder's hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors. True to its appellation, this wine possesses dark concentrated fruit flavors and robust tannins. This wine is complex and alluring with flavors of wild mountain blackberry, black cherry, currant and sweet molasses, accented by underlying flavors of graphite and cedar box. Hints of vanilla and toast are imparted by new French oak barrels. The addition of Mount Veeder Malbec with its distinguishing characteristics of dark chocolate and boysenberry adds a heightened intensity to the fruit and lends texture to this wine, while softening and balancing the tannins for a long elegant finish. Accessible now, this wine will continue to age gracefully though 2018.

Technical notes
