Winemaker's Notes

(From 2002 Vintage) "2002 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep saturated crimson color with a vivid purple hue. Vibrant blackberry fruit. espresso and herb are backed by a mineral quality. Lively and concentrated flavors of boysenberry and a spicy floral note are complimented by bright acidity and fine grain tannins. An intense mountain wine that is enjoyable upon release and will continue to imporve with short term cellaring." -Winery

    95 points Robert Parker: "The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot) is the finest Cabernet this estate has yet produced from their Howell Mountain holdings. A dense purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, creme de cassis, smoke, and crushed rocks are followed by sweet fruit, gorgeous density, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a layered, multidimensional mid-palate and length. With no hard edges, this flawless wine should drink well for 20-25 years." (12/09)
