RATINGS

96Jeb Dunnuck

...from Mount Veeder and is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. It just about jumps out of the glass and has a ripe, sexy nose of blue fruits, violets, bay leaf, and forest floor. This plush, opulent, expansive 2017 has great tannin quality, notable balance, and is another stunning wine from this team.

94+ The Wine Advocate

...prances out of the glass with flamboyant notions of warm cassis, blueberry compote and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of menthol, tapenade, fragrant soil and violets. Full, rich and packed with generous black fruits, it has a firm, grainy frame and oodles of freshness, finishing long with the oak poking through.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Mount Veeder

Mount Veeder AVA was established in 1993, though its origins as a wine producing district date to the 19th century. A German Presbyterian pastor named Peter Veeder was one of the first landowners in the area, and by 1864 one of his neighbors, a German sea captain named Stelham Wing, was producing wine commercially. The area continued to attract German agricultural entrepreneurs, some of whom established the estate that would later become the Christian Brothers Mont La Salle winery. Today the AVA includes about 1,000 acres of vineyards, most of them at relatively high altitudes. The Mayacamas vineyard, for instance, is at 2,400 feet. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape, followed by Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
