Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Forward, concentrated aromas of blackberry and black currant, followed by chocolate truffle, vanilla nut and cream.
Flavors: Deep, succulent Mt. Veeder fruit drives this Cabernet, underlain with signature black currant, pencil lead, cocoa, cedar and spicy mineral notes. Tannins are refined and supple, adding weight to the mid-palate.
Finish: Goes on and on. Generous berry flavors build in intensity, melding with a band of refined, polished tannins.
General: A powerful, balanced and complex wine with well-integrated, ripe tannins. Decanting recommended.

Vineyard Notes:

This single-vineyard source that Robert Craig helped to plant in 1990 is located at 1800 feet along the mountain’s summit. The steep contours of this 26-acre site offer quintessential Mt. Veeder terrain with multiple hillside exposures and changes in elevation. The resulting microclimates create varied weather patterns which influence grape development and ripening, The well-drained sandstone and blue shale soils provide an ideal foundation for growing small, concentrated berries. Each vineyard block is managed separately and grapes are picked in small quantities over several weeks to insure perfect ripeness. Our barrel management program matches these small lots with French oak from a variety of forest sources and toasting levels.
