A pretty fragrance of cherries and a hint of vanilla opens on to ripe berry and plum flavors, with a rich, spiced finish. Assertive tannins, yet still ripe and rounded.
Wine Maker Notes
A core of 19 blocks from our highest altitude estate vineyard comprises this proprietary Cabernet blend. The Veeder Summit Vineyard, with altitudes ranging from 1,300 to 2,000 feet, is distinguished for its steep slopes and volcanic soils and produces intensely flavored, complex wines. Each varietal in the blend has been matched to a specific vineyard block resulting in a wine that exemplifies the best expression of the vineyard each vintage.
Purple color with a sweet, black fruit nose. Black cherries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, cedar, flint and earth with big, but softening, tannins. Medium finish.
