Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.8%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Luscious fruit is upfront, presenting rich blackberry, hints of blueberry and black currant, along with chocolate, anisette and smoke. Classic Mount Veeder character, with a deep reservoir of black fruit that expands into dark cacao, cassis, vanilla and licorice, followed by earthy notes and a bracing minerality. Flavors broaden on the midpalate, underscored by mouthcoating tannins that support and lift the finish. Delicious upon release, this is a highly structured, balanced wine with exceptional aging potential. Decanting recommended.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is another dark, powerful wine. Incense, licorice, smoke, tobacco and scorched earth flow from the glass. There is plenty of Mt. Veeder character in the wine’s flavor profile and structure. Though compelling, readers need to give the 2010 time for the chewy, mouthcoating tannins to lose a bit of their edginess. The 2010 is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030."
93 Points

"Good deep ruby. Musky cassis, black cherry and spicy bitter chocolate on the nose. Concentrated and chewy but a bit youthfully reduced, with a distinctly medicinal cast to the dark fruit and menthol flavors. Showing little in the way of easy sweetness today. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a repeating medicinal quality. More brutal today than the Howell Mountain version but with plenty of potential."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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,...
