Grapes are hand-picked on our Mount Veeder vineyards at perfect ripeness. After primary fermentation – with up to 40 days of extended maceration – the wine is racked into new French oak barrels for 18 months. The Mount Veeder Cabernet shows excellent structure and deep purple color. Briary, brambly flavors of wild blackberries are overlaid with engaging spice, pepper, lavender, anise and sage.


"This is a nice, plush Cabernet, soft and sweet in blackberry, currant and chocolate fruit flavors, but it’s not a classic example of Mount Veeder Cabs, which are usually drier and more tannic. Drink in the short term. — S.H. (2/1/2009)" -Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast

"There are two stories here and neither of them is particularly promising. The wine, although not absent fruit, has more of a berryish cast to its character than the deeper, broader qualities expected of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its tannins, however, are all hillside Cabernet and simply get in the way even though future improvement is hard to foresee." -Rated 85, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
