Directly to the North Of Los Carneros and veering off to the Northwest for some 13 miles as it follows both the Mayacamas range and the boundary with Sonoma is the Mount Veeder AVA. It is here that one finds the steepest, most challenging vineyards in Napa Valley. Based as it is around the slopes of a long dormant Volcano, Mt. Veeder's soil is composed of decomposed basalt and compact ash as well as sandstone and shale at the lower elevations. With almost 3 feet of rail annually, these porous soils are one of the elements that distinguish this AVA, no to mention making it even more challenging to establish a vineyard here. The high elevation, ranging from 600 to 2300 ft, keeps the vineyards out of the reach of the San Pablo bay fog and results in temperatures that are moderate for the region. This combination of factors creates some stern, structured wines but with beautifully complex fruit. Cabernet and Chardonnay long have been the grapes of note from Mt. Veeder, with the Chardonnays retaining bright Read more »

  • Lagier Meredith Tribidrag 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark purple color. Nose of violets and blueberries. Spritzy entry of tart cherry. Mellows out as it passes back. Now it's like unsweetened plum juice. Moderate tannin. Fairly quick finish. This is an enjyable and interesting wine of subtlety. Read More

  • Lagier Meredith Syrah Mt. Veeder 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Quite dark purple in the glass. Slightly floral nose, but, really, more dark fruit. Nice hit of tart dark fruit on entry. Not particularly big tannins as the wine passes back, but slightly bitter puckeriness is noticed. Im a bit surprised that the tartness noticed on the tip of the tongue seems to diminish quickly as the wine passes back. Read More
