2010 Cabernet Earns 94 Points, Investment Grade Evaluation



Today we are proud to announce that our 2010 Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon has earned an esteemed 94 point rating after a blind and independent evaluation by Sommelier Capital Advisors.  The judges described this full-bodied cab as complex yet balanced, with a developing sophistication on the nose and palate that persists as long as 45 minutes to an hour in the glass.


Though unmistakably New World, this wine has the power and the femininity of a French Margaux — without the earth.  ~ Sommelier Capital Advisors

The Sommelier Company describes their methods as independent, systematic and objective, employing panels of experts who are certified by the Society of Wine Educators, the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, and other trusted organizations in the field.  Their review of our 2010 cabernet was conducted “blind” over 1 to 2 hours, and resulted in an Investment Grade evaluation.  This wine promises to age and develop for several more years.

 There was no dispute in the end that the wine was a bold but highly refined Cabernet Sauvignon. ~ Sommelier Capital Advisors
