"Over the past three decades we’ve come to know our mountain home quite well. Year after year, there are certain special blocks within the vineyard that produce fruit that speaks loudly about what Mount Veeder is all about. Each vintage this becomes our mountain cuvée, and this blend is led by Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, both signature grapes and easily recognizable for bold, juicy black fruit flavors and aromas of blackberries and wild mountain blueberries. Tannins are tamed by careful aging in new French oak, with resulting vanilla, oak spice and hints of clove and cinnamon layering welcomed accents through a balanced, lingering finish. Mount Veeder is Napa’s coolest and wettest mountain growing region, resulting in harvest dates well into November, allowing fruit to ripen in an almost leisurely journey to your glass. We craft the “19 Block” blend for immediate enjoyment, but this wine will continue to evolve and shine for years to come." —winemaker
