Above the fog line at 1,500 feet, this is an incredibly beautiful, yet stressed vineyard that produces trademark Mt Veeder characteristics. Dried cherry, dried herb, briar patch, tobacco and black tea aromas are matched with cassis and wild cherry flavors. This is an approachable mountain cabernet with balanced tannins and a lingering finish.
Wine Spectator 91 Polished for Mount Veeder, showing a supple, silky texture that lets the ripe cherry, black licorice and savory herb notes shine. Ends with a lingering finish.” “ The Wine Advocate 90 ... beautifully expressive in its dark red berries, flowers, mint and spices. It shows lovely detail in a style that combines power with elegance. Another year or so in bottle will help the tannins melt away a bit.”
