Veedercrest's Mount Veeder Cabernet is crafted from the famed "Pym-Rae" vineyard, now responsible for Alfred Tesseron's (Pontet-Canet) signature cult Napa Cabernet. Back in the day, Veedercrest was a staple producer of Napa Valley Cabernet and Chardonnay until the mid-1980s, even garnering plaudits from the eminent Steven Spurrier at the 1976 Judgement of Paris. The label ceased production in 1986 but was revived in the 2005 vintage with a series of dynamic wines of exceptional depth and power. The "Pym-Rae" vineyard is at the heart of this wine, a property that was long owned by Robin Williams and named after his children. It's a remote, steep, and unforgiving site, but Tesseron's acquisition only further cements the site's singular pedigree. The Veedercrest winemaking team makes full use of this impeccable fruit to craft uncompromising, bold, and distinctive wines from this singular terroir.

A dinner party showboat that distances itself from the field by doing pretty much everything well. The most overused quote in wine is that Napa Cab is so expensive, but at half the cost of comparable bottlings this wine is Exhibit A for why the area has become so prized. An aggressive and muscled 80's Movie Star that shows everything off, this is flashy and character packed juice that wants you to like it. With a wealth of red and black fruit mixed in with sweet cedar and cigar tones that cascade into round, svelte tannins on a massive finish, it could go another decade, but should be drank now, soon, and often. If your friends can't stop talking about their last visit to a Cult Cab property, bring a bottle of this and brag about the cost.

Very opulent, polished, exotic and rich. Huge density of ripe mountain fruit, big but polished tannins and a lush, decadent mouthfeel. Despite the almost hedonistic upfront attack, the wine has brightness and poise to bring focus to the mid-palate and refined finish. 2009’s moderate and even growing season allowed winemakers to wait for optimal ripeness without fear of losing acidity to heat spikes or other anomalies. This wine really shows the quality of the vintage. It’s very complete and drinking beautifully with a long life (maybe another 15 years) ahead of it. Very classy stuff indeed.
