Winemaker's Notes:

Above the fog line at 1,500 feet, this is an incredibly beautiful, yet stressed vineyard that produces trademark Mt Veeder characteristics. Dried cherry, dried herb, briar patch, tobacco and black tea aromas are matched with cassis and wild cherry flavors. This is an approachable mountain cabernet with balanced tannins and a lingering finish.
