"For the past several years we’ve been replanting some historic blocks here on Mount Veeder, and the figurative and literal fruits of our labors are beginning to elevate the quality of the wines from our mountain home. It’s honestly, simply, exciting. A touch more Malbec this vintage sets the stage for a classic mountain Cabernet led by aromas of wild mountain raspberry and Bing cherry. Malbec trends toward blue fruit, and nothing is quite so luscious as blueberries framed by hints of vanilla, cassis, creamy milk chocolate caramel and oak spice. We watch our Cabernet age in the old barrel chai visitors first see as they walk toward the winery, and the nearly two-year wait in barrel is proving once again to be well worth it. This, you’re going to enjoy." —winemaker
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mount Veeder (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec) was one of the top wines presented to me. This wine needs another 4-5 years of cellaring and could keep 30 years. A beautiful nose of white flowers, graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, along with the telltale cassis and tobacco leaf are all present in this wine, which offers great intensity and full-bodied power in a well-delineated and moderately structured style. Give the wine some time and watch it unfold. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2025+. For the quality, it is a reasonably priced wine, and there are 7,480 cases." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"With 20% Malbec, this wine is layered in refined complexity, swaying from juicy blueberry to herbaceous cherry and currant. Restrained in oak, with the slightest notion of vanilla on the palate, it finishes in mouthwatering dark chocolate—the tannins firm and structured." —Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
