Rich and complex with notes of cassis, blackberry and plum. Soft hints of black pepper and tobacco are accented by vanilla, dark chocolate and black cherry.
The vineyards lie 1,000-1,6000 above the valley floor. The mountain is demanding but the rewards are wines of great intensity - wines with rich, earthy tannins and bold, dark fruit flavors. The fruit is picked maximum ripeness, when flavor, texture, aroma and color are all in balance. The Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and Mount Veeder Reserve are indeed provocative expressions of their challenging terroir-a merging of microclimate, soil, and slope with small-lot winemaking that reveals characters unique to this volcanic hillside.
"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
