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.

The 2015 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful, balanced and fruit-driven. Taste juicy red and black cherries with notes of oak and vanilla. Classic Mount Veeder tannins create a long, velvety finish. This Cabernet will only improve with time in the cellar.
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. Wines from 2015 will be very hard to find and will be at a premium. Tasting Notes
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. Tasting Notes
The 2017 growing season delivered ample rain and replenished soils after years of drought. Ideal weather at bloom yielded vigorous vines that required extra attention to ensure balance. This attentiveness resulted in a superb vintage. This 2017 Cab is exceptionally full-bodied with lingering black cherry, hints of dark chocolate and a smooth finish. It has excellent acidity and fruit expression.
This 2018 Cab marks Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards’ 10th vintage. This Cab is opaque purple in the glass. The core flavors of wild blueberry preserves, black currant, cherry, cassis, and licorice are vivid and well-defined. Aromas of violet cascade to a rich and silky finish with bright acidity and balanced tannins. This vintage is a perfect 10th anniversary wine. Tasting Notes

An experience of a lifetime
This is one of the most personal experiences my clients will have in their lives. Besides creating an exceptional wine, my favorite step in the process is working with them to create their labels. I enjoy being a part of designing a label that imparts something significant in their world, such as:
- A celebration of a birth, anniversary or marriage
- To offer as a gift or ‘thank you’ to their clients
- To mark their success in business
- In honor of someone
Several choose to purchase multiple vintages so they can build a vertical library of their private label.
This is a truly bespoke experience, and not likely something anyone they know already has.
