    Winemaker's Notes:

    Above the fog line at 1,500 feet, this is an incredibly beautiful, yet stressed vineyard that produces trademark Mt Veeder characteristics. Dried cherry, dried herb, briar patch, tobacco and black tea aromas are matched with cassis and wild cherry flavors. This is an approachable mountain cabernet with balanced tannins and a lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The similarly colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cloud's Nest Vineyard is from Mt. Veeder, a complicated mountain site of many diverse terroirs, but with the best parcels having fabulous potential. More black raspberry, blueberry and floral notes along with hints of background oak and roasted coffee emerge from this 2008. Slightly more seamless than its two predecessors, this opulent wine displays layers and layers of fruit and a rich, powerful finish with no hard edges. There is plenty of tannin, but the luxurious fruit levels conceal most of the tannin. This wine should drink well for 15-20 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Offers complexity, balance, texture and finesse, with dried dark berry, roasted herb, mineral and loamy earth flavors, with a final push of currant and raspberry, mixed with a splash of espresso. Best from 2012 through 2021. 550 cases made.

    Dry, tough and gritty. The main issue is the tannins, which are hard as nails, and coat the mouth with sandpapery astringency. Yet underneath is a solid core of blackberry fruit. Classically old style Mount Veeder, this Cabernet wants a good six years in the cellar, and it could develop for far longer.
