Mount Veeder's Cabernet Sauvignon Rugged mountain conditions produce grapes with intensely concentrated fruit and big, rich tannins. Taming these tannins and preserving flavor are the high-altitude winemaker's biggest challenge. Because Mount Veeder's growing season starts late and often stretches well into November, harvest is a waiting game. But patience is rewarded with fully-developed flavors and ripe, rich tannins in the skins and seeds. Mount Veeder Winery grapes are handled as little as possible, using tested techniques to bring out the concentration and power that mountain grapes reveal. All lots are given a cold soak and frequent punch downs to achieve maximum extraction of fruit flavors and color, while extended contact with the skins encourages the tannins to soften and meld. Finally, aging in finely-grained French oak barrels promotes harmony and integration, and blending enhances the strengths of each varietal to achieve balance in the final wine.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is deep ruby in color. It?s concentrated ripe cherry, black currant and plum aromas are interlaced with complex notes of dark chocolate, clove and toasty oak and build a complementary blend of enticing aromas. It is well-structured and integrated, the richly woven palate boasts mountain characteristics of intense dark berry and cassis with highlights of bay, anise and mocha. Full and textural, hints of nutmeg and vanilla bean add to the long persistent finish.
