Our signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate Veeder Hills Vineyard. Its steep slopes and sedimentary clay and shale soils restrict root growth, resulting in Mount Veeder's hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors. True to its appellation, this wine possesses dark concentrated fruit flavors and robust tannins.
Offers a charming yet firm mix of rich, dense, chewy dark berry, mocha and cigar box flavors, with a measure of finesse and grace not typical for Mount Veeder. Tempting now, but should reward cellar time
The fruity concentration on this Cabernet is amazing. It just explodes in blackberries, blueberries and cassis liqueur. Meanwhile, 80% new French oak, in which the wine aged for nearly two years, brings strong notes of caramel and vanilla. The tannins are ripe and strong. All indications point to the cellar. Drink it starting in 2018.
