“Deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder has pronounced notes of crushed plums, cassis and mulberries with hints of black soil, licorice and dark chocolate plus a waft of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers great expression with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long and layered.”

Tasting Notes
On the edge of the sky between valley and shore, this vineyard roosts in one of the most demanding wine growing appellations in Napa Valley. Cooled by San Pablo Bay, the growing season is long and the yields are small. Steep slopes present their own set of challenges. The prize at the end is fruit with intense flavors, deep colors and sturdy tannins. A best friend to a beautifully curated cheese course, and a delightful companion to braised beef, lamb and venison as well as richer fare.
