Jeb Dunnuck 96+Points: ‘From younger plantings in the southwest portion of Mt. Veeder, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder is all Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 82% new French oak. Offering notes of cassis, red plums, wild scrub brush, and scorched earth, it’s beautiful on the palate, with surprisingly supple tannins, medium to full body, wonderful balance, and a great finish.”
Winemaker Notes: This 2021 Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, with its eye-catching deep ruby color, is a stunning representation of the AVA. The aromas of ripe blackberries, plum, and cassis fill the glass. The wine displays a remarkable balance between power and elegance with a full-bodied palate and velvety tannins, offering a silky smooth texture and mouthfeel. The balance and framework of the wine allow the flavors to persist allowing a memorable lengthy finish. While remaining approachable in its youth a healthy decant will help fully unlock its potential.
