Barreled in French Oak, this wine derives its complexity from the vineyard’s 7 differing soil types. It is rich in color and has excellent structure with a nice fruit balance – lots of classic dark cherry, cassis, hints of currant and blueberry, mocha barrel notes and true to Mount Veeder, fine grain tannins.

This 2011 vintage is full-bodied with classic Mount Veeder flavors ~ Pure dark cherry, clove, and currants, with a hint of dried red fruit.

Fruit concentration is the hallmark of this 2012 vintage ~ dark cherry and cassis are prevalent from the front of the palate, all the way through to a lush finish. The trademark “Veeder” tannins are pushed to their limit. This is a big, sturdy mountain Cab.
This is a big, structured mountain Cab. Depth, intensity and balance best describe this 2013 vintage. Classic Mount Veeder velvety tannins frame deep, rich dark cherry and cassis. Drinkable now yet also age worthy.
This 2014 vintage Cab has great balance and excellent acidity. Taste cherry and cassis, mixed with dark berries. The oak is sweet and offers espresso notes. This Cab has a very rich and inviting fruit profile ~ huge volume on the palate that carries through to a lush and lengthy finish.
The 2015 harvest was one of the earliest in Napa Valley history. The yields were low, yet the fruit quality is excellent. The early growing season allowed me to leave my grapes on the vine until they offered the precise ‘spice rack’ I wanted to achieve for this vintage. It is aging beautifully. Wines from 2015 will be very hard to find and will be at a premium. I suggest reserving as early as possible if you are interested in having this vintage in your cellar.
This 2016 vintage is refined yet powerful. Its deep violet hue offers a perfume of black cherry, damp earth and dark chocolate covered blueberries. The velvety finish lingers on the palate for close to a minute. It is opulence in a bottle.
