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 »

    This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon had a candied nose, a richness with a layered multitude of fruit on the mid palate. Preferably a wine to age 5 years. Read More

  • Lagier Meredith Tribidrag 2012


    Quite dark purple color. Nose has a lot of red fruit aromas, and, maybe, some spice. Jammy red fruit on the tongue. Fat and mouth-filling. Good tannic backbone keeps this one from being an insipid fruit bomb. Read More

  • Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012


    The wine is a deep brooding, inky color that's so classic of a great Napa Cabernet. The nose is a lovely combination of leather, cassis, baking spice and just a hint of mint. The taste is just classic, a rush of ripe black fruit, blackberry, plum and a bit of coriander that transition effortlessly to some spice notes of vanilla bean and anise ... Read More

  • Mount Veeder Winery Napa Valley Cabernet 2009


    Lots of blue in the color makes it a nice purple. Nose is somewhat minty, and Im getting a hint of licorice. On the tongue, there is a pleasant cassis flavor that is not overwhelming. Very firm tannin remove fruitiness. There is some sort of olive flavor way in the back of the palate, but it diminishes quickly. It does not seem to appear in... Read More
