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 Syrah Mt. Veeder 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly pungent nose fruit hints of red plum and strawberry. Easily slides over the tongue on entry and it takes a half a second or so for flavors to be detecteddefinitely tart cherry. That shows the acid profile. On the edges of the tongue tannin emerges. I would be a tad reluctant to cellar this one for very much longer. However, a very enj... Read More

  • Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark and attractive in the glass. "Hefty" nose--earthy with hints of spice. Very nice on the palate. The texture seems satiny smooth. Some cassis and peppercorn flavors. Tannins appear to have been tamed. Nice acid. This looks like a good food wine. US$27.99 at Total Wine in 2010. Read More

  • Mount Veeder Napa Cabernet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque and showing a little age. This is smoky and grilled beefy on the nose with a nice combination of sweet black plum and blackcurrant fruit, smoky herbs, soil tones and vanilla oak. A little tight still in the mouth with tannins that are softly austere supporting a rich, savory core of fruit. There's still a lot of mineral earth and some wo... Read More
