Another relatively cool vintage on the mountain offers the softer side of our Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, a vintage that combines classic mountain vigor with just a touch of agreeable elegance. On the nose, you’ll welcome aromas of bright cherry and blackberry, with hints of vanilla, nutmeg and cedar from aging in new French oak. In your glass, enjoy a sweet entry with soft, supple tannins. Distinctive flavors of cherry paired with graham cracker crust are joined by notes of vanilla, cassis and rich, creamy caramel in a lingering, gentle finish. A bit unusual in contrast to other vintages, but decidedly delightful.
Our signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate Veeder Hills Vineyard. The elevation of this vineyard ranges from 600-1,120 feet, and 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.
