Winemaker Notes

On the nose, this wine offers aromas of red cherry, blueberry, plum, mocha, vanilla bean and caramel -- with hints of lavender, rosemary and raspberry leaf. A youthful mountain wine with amazing complexity. The palate shows plum, cherry and raspberry flavors, with good tannins and bright acidity.

Pair with a simple salad, thin crust mushroom/asiago pizza, porcini risotto with roast pork loin and buttered green beans, or apple almond galette with vanilla bean ice cream!

Wine Enthusiast
Seems to have hardly aged over nearly six years, still showing massive blackberry, cherry, cassis and dark chocolate flavors, sweet and fresh. Lots of oak, too, bringing even more caramelized sweetness. Yet the finish is dry, long and spicy. Made from 100% Cabernet, but sometimes these wines surprise.

Rubissow Winery Image
In the 1980s our father and his partner Tony Sargent, founded Rubissow-Sargent wines - sourced entirely from the 45 acre Rubissow estate on the steep southern hillsides of Mt. Veeder. Today, as second generation owners we are excited to present our own wines - Rubissow. Our aim is true: to make rare, single vineyard wines promising deep expression of place, exquisite enjoyment and rewarding ageability.

Winemaker Timothy Milos is our accomplice in wine - the next interpreter of the Rubissow Vineyard. Together, with shared ambition and modern craft we bring you the entirely reimagined Rubissow wines.

Mt. Veeder Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

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.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
