Winemaker's Notes

82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3% Other Red Varietals.

Concentrated dark cherry and cassis, with bright fruit character, a well-structured palate, and fine mountain tannins. Big yet approachable, the mouthfeel is full and round, with good body and balance. Sweet oak notes complement the vibrant fruit, and the long finish is graced by flavors of cocoa, cassis, and rich mountain character.

"Deep crimson hue. Pretty nose with maple, vanilla and black cherry fruit. Soft mouth-feel with a silky tannin impressions and elegant integration of berry fruit and acidity. Tart, tangy close with blackberry, leather and coffee impressions." 91 Points

The Mount Veeder cab is a wonderful wine in the $30 range. It can stand up to other cabs that are much higher in price! This wine is a well-kept secret and should be widely enjoyed due to it's big, robust and structure containing a gorgeous balance of dark fruits, oak and vanilla.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
