A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc with soft bright fruit aromas of dark fruits and floral notes. On the palate black cherry, berries and sweet dried fruit, complex with silky smooth tannins, great mouthfeel with a touch of gentle oak and minerality. This is a real find, the 2009 still has room to develop. Grab a steak and you have a great meal!

This needs time or a solid decant, but was a solid option for a split at the end of the night - and better than any by the glass offerings. The potential was clear - blueberry, blackberry, cassis, leather, spices, a touch minerally, great balance, nice tannins. Full bodied and great mouthfeel.

A beautiful example of Napa mountain cab - classic Mt. Veeder expression balancing cassis and blackberry with earthy and herbal notes. Concentrated, good length
