Wine Advocate 99 points – Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder features an incredible perfume of potpourri, baking spices, charcuterie and forest floor with a core of ripe red and black plums, blackcurrant cordial and black cherries plus a hint of violets. Full-bodied, very tightly knit and incredibly youthful, the concentrated fruit flavors reveal a myriad of earth and mineral accents with a rock-solid, grainy texture to support and a very long, lively finish. Give this beauty another 4-6 years in bottle and then drink it over the next 25+..August/2018
Bathed in sunlight on the western ridges of the Mayacamas Mountains and at the northern end of the Mount Veeder appellation, this vineyard sits at 1,800 feet and struggles in rugged volcanic terrain. Shallow soils low in minerals and nutrients challenge the vitality of the vines and produce small berries with intensely concentrated fruit. The wine is full-bodied and structured, with layers of blue and black fruit and wet stone minerality. It’s a superb candidate for cellaring.
