    Winemaker's Notes:

    Walking our vineyard during harvest on Mount Veeder in the early morning hours, you are struck by an abundance of sun. This is different from other parts of the valley and, for that matter, from our vineyard at other times of day. You look across a great lake of fog below you and up to an azure sky and realize that what denes Mount Veeder is an intensity of light. This intensity has the effect on the 2009 Mount Veeder of concentrated blue fruits, chewable tannins, and a mild coffee roast that carries the avor on your palate far after you have swallowed the wine.

    Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good deep ruby. Rich aromas of currant and graphite minerality. Lush, round and large-scaled, with strong rocky and mineral qualities adding interest to its very sexy flavors of black raspberry and spices. Dry, classic, powerful cabernet whose broad tannins are amazingly supple for Mount Veeder. Finishes subtle and extremely long. An excellent vintage for this bottling, which is from vines planted at 1,700 feet.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder (from Veeder Peak) flows onto the palate with layers of dark, mineral-infused fruit. Graphite, cassis, blackberries, spices and new leather are some of the nuances that take shape in the glass. This is at once open and approachable, but also quite intense and mineral.
