Persistent fruit flavors of wild berries, cassis, and tobacco leaf lead to well-integrated, precise tannins and a structured palate. Secondary notes of baking spice and blackberry pie, accented by sumptuous notes of espresso, mocha, and cedar, round out this full-bodied mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is beautifully extended, with evident aging potential and exceptional lift.
Perched at the top of Mount Veeder in Napa Valley, this high-elevation vineyard is the sole source of cabernet sauvignon/\. Sourced from our estate vineyard, this intense and powerful Cabernet is a extraordinary example of the potential that comes from fruit cultivated at a high elevation on volcanic soils.
We recommend this bold, robust Cabernet with the traditional choice of steak, burgers, or slow-braised beef dishes. Anything with a bit of spice or charring will complement the rich fruit flavors and tannins. Full-flavored mushrooms, like portabello or button mushrooms, have an intense umami flavor that marries well with the intensity of this wine.
