Winemaker's Notes:

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petite Verdot, 2% Syrah and 1% Malbec. Deep garnet. Concentrated aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, anise, and bay, highlighted with notes of coffee and currants. Very full-bodied, plushy and dense. Rich and round mouthfeel with intense flavors of cassis and black cherry. Good structure and well-balanced, with fine-grained tannins and a long finish of sweet vanilla, mocha, and berries. 14.5% alcohol.

“Mount Veeder is a magical place—a rare and beautiful spot where vines cling to the steep hillsides, producing tiny, concentrated berries that give our wines their big, bold, brambly fruit character.” Both Mount Veeder Winery and the rugged appellation take their names from an ancient volcano—a nearly 2,700 foot peak that crowns the southeast section of the Mayacamas Range, running between Napa and Sonoma. The Mount Veeder appellation encompasses 25 square miles of some of the steepest vineyards in California. Winemaking in the region dates back to the 1860s and by the late 1800s, the mountain hosted at least 20 vineyards and six wineries. Pioneers who cultivated vineyards on Mount Veeder knew there was something special about wines from these steep slopes. Winemakers across the Napa Valley began to recognize that grapes from Mount Veeder and other mountain appellations had an intensity and depth unlike grapes from the valley floor. Powerful and distinct, mountain grapes challenged the winemaker to tame their rugged tannins and reveal a deeper character. Mountain grapes soon became the backbone of many of Napa Valley’s best wines because of their structure and concentrated flavors. Today, mountain wines are in a class by themselves. In flavor and texture, the profile of a mountain wine is different. It is more difficult to produce; rare and limited in supply, but undeniably captivating, charismatic and long-lived. Read less

Off topic Cup cake wine advertised That one I tried last week for fun need to know (sacrificed myself) I cannot comment on any of those wines...sorry But the wine called cup cake I can!! What a terrible wine, notes of chemical unbalanced awful, bitter fruit juice. I've worked in the wine industry (for 20 years) 5 years as a wine consultant. A beaujolais nouveau would be better we all know how fast they are made. your friend in wine M.J.

off topic The ad for the Trapiche malbec is good But the one you must try Trapiche Bonarda origin Italy very dark color, blackcurrant, prunes, very ripe cherry taste. Lite on the oak. tannins soft very easy drinking not extremely complex. For the price nice product. nice with lamb, beef, Nachos, all Italian dishes.
