Winemaker Notes

Brilliant dark ruby, the nose of this 2015 is pretty, fun, and serious all at the same time. Berries and cream, cardamom, and rose petal entwine in this complex package. Lush and mouth-filling while the perfect tannins and weight lift the spice flavors to a lengthy and refreshing finish. Destined to last for many years.

James Suckling

A juicy and fruity zin with crushed-berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Shows softness and easiness with some form and freshness. 90% zinfandel with mourvedre, charbono and carignan. Drink now.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Tight and thick in a concentration of dark black fruit, this is the producer's 25th vintage from this site on the wild appellation. Oak, tannin and dried herb give it a savory persistence that complements the complexity of tart brooding flavor.

With the release of our first wine in 1987, a Zinfandel, our goal has always been the same - to produce delicious and reasonably priced wines that distinguish themselves from the ocean of wine in the marketplace. The wines we like to drink and the ones we seek to make are those with soul and personality.

More than 30 years of winemaking experience, decisions based on intuition and feelings, a great respect for tradition, and access to some of the best grape sources in Napa Valley give us a head-start in achieving those goals.

We are a very small operation, and nearly all of our artisan wines have a case level production of fewer than 1000 cases. We are grateful that word of mouth has sustained us for all these years.

Mt. Veeder Wine

Napa Valley, California

Centered at the peak for which it is named, Mount Veeder is Napa’s largest sub-AVA. But even though the entire appellation spreads over 16,000 acres, vineyards cover a mere 1,000. Scattered among Douglas firs and bristlecone pines, Mount Veeder vineyards extend south from the upper elevations of the Mayacamas Mountains—the highest point at 2,400 feet—to the border of the Carneros region. Less than 25 wineries produce wine from Mount Veeder fruit.

Winemaking began early in this appellation. In 1864, Captain Stelham Wing presented the first Mount Veeder wine to the Napa County Fair; it came from today’s Wing Canyon Vineyard. Prohibition, of course, halted winemaking and viticulture wasn’t revitalized until the founding of Mayacamas Vineyards in 1951 and Bernstein Vineyards in 1964.

The Bernstein Vineyards was actually home to the first Petit Verdot in California, planted in 1975. Today most of the Petit Verdot in Napa Valley originates from this vineyard.

Rocky volcanic clay and ancient seabed matter dominate Mount Veeder soils—perfect for Bordeaux varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot enjoy spectacular success. These varieties produce wines rich in brambly blackberry and black cherry fruit with herbal and floral aromatics. Structures are moderate to assertive and wines have great staying power.

Chardonnay from Mount Veeder is lush, full and balanced mineral and fresh citrus flavors.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
