Jeb Dunnuck 96+ Points: “I loved the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder from the barrel and it showed beautifully from the bottle. Deep purple-hued, with powerful notes of blackcurrants, leafy herbs, tapenade, chocolate, and bay leaf, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a lush, sumptuous texture, awesome tannins, and a finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. This beautiful Mount Veeder Cabernet will evolve for 20-25 years.”
Vinous 95 Points: ”The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from a new site on Mt. Veeder, that is just beginning to enter production. Inky and explosive, the 2018 possesses off the charts richness. The 2018 captures all the intensity of Veeder, but without the tannins and harsher elements that can penalize Cabernets here. The 2018 vintage is a total turn-on. It is a remarkable effort for a vineyard that was only planted in 2014 and 2015. Don’t miss it.”
Winemaker Notes: “We are incredibly excited with our first effort from this newly planted site on Mount Veeder and feel fortunate to have started with such a heralded vintage. The 2018 Mt. Veeder is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is made up of clones 685 and 169 that were co-fermented for 14 days. Inky purple and highly aromatic with notes of fresh blueberries, black olives, bakers chocolate and spearmint running the length of the wine. The wine’s true beauty reveals itself hours after being open which gives us a glimpse of what this wine will become in the years ahead and might be the most exciting part of the process. The drinking part is still the most fun.”
