From the highest elevations of our Mount Veeder vineyards, early ripening red varietals have been planted for their compatibility with these vineyards specific growing conditions. The result is a layered Cabernet Sauvignon based wine with pronounced fruit characteristics that are balanced by supple tannins.
"A very fine wine, basically a Bordeaux blend except with a splash of Syrah, which adds a meat and violet flower note to the ripe, powerful black currants. New oak shows up in the smoky, cedary overlay. It’s a tannicly dry wine, in the way of Napa mountain Cabs, but so balanced and refined, you can drink it now. Should develop through 2012."
This is a hidden gem. As good if not better than the more expensive Mt. Veeder cab and very close to the style of the Allomi vineyard bottling. Big perfumed nose, rich mouthfeel of plum, black fruits and cassis. Love it!
This is our "go-to" wine. Moderately priced, this is a great 92 point wine. Will buy over and over.
