This wine is very dark, opaque in fact, expressing dark ruby hues. A blockbuster wine with massive depth, the brooding fruitful aroma opens to blackberry jam with blueberry compote. There is a minerality of earth and graphite, expressing a since of place, mingling with black forest and very well integrated oak spices. The entry is full and promising with dark fruit flavors like dark cherry, plum and blackberry with a hint of expresso, while the tannins are firm but nicely integrated. With lots of depth, great acid balance, this wine is juicy and rich; a great example of a refined mountain cabernet that begs to be paired with a perfectly marbled, grilled ribeye steak!

Vineyard Notes

Veeder Peak (100 %). This mountain top vineyard, in the Mt. Veeder appellation, produces dark fruit with tons of depth, extract and structure. The mountain top soils are sedimentary, shallow, generally well drained, sandy loam in texture, uniquely mineral rich, and acidic with low fertility. With a cool climate in general, this mountain top vineyard is typically above the fog line. With warmer nights and cooler days than the valley floor, hi temperatures usually top out at 85 deg F. This terroir develops small vines with low yields, small berries and very flavorful wines.


Production Notes

The winter continued a dry weather pattern and bud break was early. The growing season was moderate, near ideal, and on an early pace. Most varieties were harvested in September with a final wrap up on October 10th…getting it all in before any rains developed.
