K&L Notes

Winery Notes: This wine defines our passion for mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon. At 1,500 feet elevation, at the end of a long and winding road, Larry Stricker’s picturesque vineyard comprises a series of steep hillsides and mixed sedimentary and volcanic soils. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines that cling to its slopes produce small clusters of deeply concentrated grapes that lead to statuesque wines with immense aging potential. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot."

    Mt. Veeder Cab for under fifty dollars? Throw in an exceptional vintage and we are talking lunacy! The 2013 Sbragia Godspeed Vineyard Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is the real deal. Baking cocoa is immediately apparent on the nose with a mint and eucalyptus tinge in the background. The palate is prototypical Mt. Veeder: deeply spiced, vividly floral, brambleberry and minerality. Get some while it lasts.

    When Robert Parker drinks this wine and says it's a once in a lifetime vintage for Mount Veeder, you sit up and take notice. This smashing Napa Cab grows on steep hillsides at high elevation on volcanic soils. The nose boasts bramble berries, cedar wood, cigar box, dry earth, powerful floral notes, and licorice. The palate touts tart cherries, dark vanilla, cassis, and blackberry compote. This wine has exceptional structure and balanced tannins. It's beautiful now, and it will age exceptionally well.

    This is the BEST Cabernet I've tasted in months! High praise coming from the SF CA Cab liason. It's big and luscious with a finish that lasts for days. Deep dark fruit nuances with ample tannins. If you're a lover of CA Cab like me, you'll run to the nearest K&L and snag this wine with a quickness. It's a 2013 for under $50 folks!!!
    Drink from 2019 to 2033

    Wow! This wine is firing on all cylinders right now. Quintessential Mountain Cab from a great vintage and a legendary winemaker. This has the hallmark aromas of Veeder Cab - briary red and black fruit, cedar, cigar box, power and finesse in perfect symphony. This wine is explosively aromatic and rich but also quite refined and poised on the palate with length and a fine linear tannin structure. It's drinking beautifully with a few years in bottle to integrate and mature, but still has 10+ years of life ahead of it. We struck a great deal on this majestic 2013 bottling and our price is almost to good to be true. Don't miss it!
