A feat of complexity, perfumed and profound, the 2006 Mount Veeder Reserve presents layer upon layer of wild mountain berry, plum, and forest floor aromas wrapped in notes of sage, mocha, clove, and bay. Romantic and brooding on the nose, with hints of cassis and violets, this Reserve brings a lush, bold mouthfeel with further notes of vanilla and dark chocolate on the palate. The full-bodied, integrated tannins lend robust structure that extends into a lengthy, infinitely expressive finish.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc
"A big, big wine, showing hard mountain tannins and extraordinary concentration of fruit. Made from a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend of the five classic Bordeaux varieties, it's massive in blackberry, cherry, creme de cassis, mineral and smoky oak flavors that finish dry and long. A serious cellar contender, it should start to come into its own after 2014."

Excellent Blend - fruit springs eternal
Earthy & Spicy
Stunning depth and rich, clean finish. This was a real surprise. While the Veeder cabs are always good, this is a step above. Wish we had purchased more when it was available.
Big & Bold
Thick and mouth coating this Bordeaux style blend is full of black fruit flavors, Eucalyptus and smoke. Round and plush it's approachable now but the finish lingers with soft silky tannins showing its ability to age for years.
