Mount Veeder Winery was the first vineyard in the Napa Valley appellation to have all five of the grape varieties used in a classic Bordeaux blend. Mount Veeder Winery feels that blending is the key to crafting the most complete, balanced wine. Artisanal winemaking skills, beginning with gentle handling in the vineyard and finishing with extended barrel aging in the cellar, ensure the wines are enjoyable upon release, yet capable of graceful aging. Vibrant berry and dark chocolate flavors blend with black peppercorn and graphite to create a complex and full palate. The rich, velvety structure delivers a smooth and seamless finish of cassis, blackberry pie, and rosemary. Aromas of deep cherry, plum, and vanilla intertwine with beautiful hints of anise and caramel. Varietal: 83% cabernet sauvignon, 11% merlot, 3% petit verdot, 2% malbec, 1% cabernet franc.
