Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2019

My new Favorite white, just love mountain fruit! Named for mountain range dividing Napa & Sonoma, old stone winery dug into side of dormant volcano crater in 1889, remained in production ever since. Pale lemon with aromas of Tropical and stone fruit with complex spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and citrus with light oak and nutty tones, fresh and vibrant, well integrated. Long finish ending with fruit and flinty mineral characteristics. Long aging potential. Nice! — 14 days ago

Nuts, the 2019 is not available out here. Just 2020 and possibly 2018. Have you tried those?

John, yes I have had several bottles of the ‘18 (actually bought a case) have none left but the ‘18 should be great with a bit of age on it. Wish I had one left.

Mayacamas Range Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Dark red. Smooth and earthy at same time. Unusual combination imho. Almost no tannins left. Dark fruit. Good balance. Some musty flavors. Long finish.. 2002. Drink now. I don’t think much will be left in 5 years . — 2 years ago

Organic old vines from the Sonoma side of mayacamas. I absolutely love Sonoma valley zin way more than cabs or anything else from here. History in a bottle and damn good at that. Very pretty fruit (almost old world in character - is there carignane and Alicante here?) wonderful wine and one my favorite zins of the year.... after reading more and more about California’s wine history, I’ve been drawn more and more to old vine zin because it is our mark on the wine world. I can’t imagine a better expression of Sonoma than this kind of stuff. Very cool — 3 years ago

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

This did not disappoint. It’s still showing pretty youthful and even after being opened for a couple hours it still was opening up and developing. Black and red fruits, earthy dirt notes and tobacco spice. Integrated tannins but still present. Another 10 years and this wine is going to be 100pt worthy! — 17 days ago

Love it and all smiles - a cross of what Mayacamas wine would be when made in the Bordeaux style from st Julien specifically leoville style - please decant three hours or rest a little more in the bottle - promise it will last 30 years - deep purple in color actually a beautiful rich purple - dark fruits galore - Christian Moeiux is a genius - sweet cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crème de cassis, and black raspberries - full-bodied powerful complex mouthfeel is incredible - maybe this could become a new Dominus

900 cases produced - I think suckling is a little high with his score of 98 but hits many of the marks - I would try this wine compared to a dominus and I bet you will see what I am talking about - Bevan’s napa Bordeaux’s are more approachable upfront and the consistent scores he gets reflects this but given time this should be a wine that will compete and a wine to try - bravo CM - thank you for challenging yourself

Robert Keenan Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

From high in the Mayacamas Range, at elevation of 1,700 feet, lies Spring Mountain and the Robert Keenan Winery. Cab Sauv sourced, 73% from Spring Mountain and 27% from Pope Valley. Dark opaque Ruby with aromas of red fruits, oak, smoke, sweet herbs and spice. On the palate black raspberry and blackberry flavors with notes of tobacco, cacao and espresso. Fine dusty tannins, satisfying acidity on complex long smooth finish ending with sweet oak tones. Nice! Drink now! — 2 years ago
