...sweet, jammy, blackcurrant, truffle, licorice, and vanillin-scented nose is youthful as well as expressive. Full-bodied, structured, and rich, with high tannin and equally high levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract,..

91Wine Spectator

Dense and concentrated, packed with ripe, rich flavors of earthy currant, mineral, anise, tar and spice. Finishes with firm, chewy tannins, but plenty of fruit flavor works its way through, providing depth and complexity.


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.


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.
