Winemaker's Notes

Mount Veeder was the first winery in California to have one vineyard planted to all five Bordeaux varietals. The Mount Veeder Reserve is an elegant statement of the winemaking philosophy that blending creates a wine more than the sum of its parts. Crafted from small lots of exceptionally concentrated fruit from our three ranches, this distinctive red wine is the essence of power and finesse.

Varietal Composition: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot

Appearance: Dark garnet red

Aroma: Concentrated plum, tobacco, coffee and cocoa layered with rich plum, black fruit and subtle hints of anise.

Taste and Texture: Rich and full-bodied. Notes of coffee, plum and vanilla fill the mouth and lead to ripe and supple tannins on the lengthy finish.
