K&L Notes

From the winery: "Mount Veeder Winery was one born from the hard work and dedication of Michael and Arlene Bernstein. The Bernsteins first discovered the rugged property in the early 1960s and later bought it as a rustic retreat. In the ensuing years they transformed it into an enviable vineyard, almost by accident. After farming the property’s prune orchard for the first few years, a farmhand who lived on the property presented the Bernsteins with a bundle of cast-off grapevine cuttings. Michael stuck the unrooted cuttings into the ground and never gave them a drop of water. Miraculously, of the 60 cuttings planted, 58 lived. Michael turned his full attention to the vines and built his land into a thriving vineyard, ultimately making history as the first vintner in Napa Valley to plant one property to all five of the classic Bordeaux varieties."

    Mt. Veeder Cab at this price point is almost unheard of. Add the fact that 2015 produced wines of powerful concentration but low, low yields and this price seems even more ludicrous. The wine shows the classic brambly, tobacco laced Cabernet fruit the appellation is known for but with a little more richness, softness and accessibility then one might expect from mountain fruit. This is a killer value for drinking now or in 5-10 years - don't miss it.

    At elevations of 1,000 to 1,600 feet, the mesoclimate up on Mount Veeder is completely different than the valley floor. You can definitely taste this in the wine. 2015 was a warm year with tons of fruit, so this wine can be enjoyed now if you are looking for something to pair with your grilled meat dishes. This is a dense, full and sturdy Cabernet that should hold up well in a cellar as well.

    A killer Napa cab at a killer price. Good to go now with its ripe, juicy tannin, leather, and layers of tobacco notes. The density of the deep, dark fruit notes are mouthwatering. If you like cabs that have a personality and swagger, this is for you.
