I have never been able to offer today’s wine at this low of a price before and it is too good for any Napa Cabernet lover to pass up. Even if your cellar is loaded to the brim, this is worth making room for. The wine is Mount Veeder Winery 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, and with the winery’s established legacy in Napa Valley, coupled along with the discount of 31% off and 95pts from Suckling; 93pts from Wine Spectator and 92+pt rating from Parker’s Wine Advocate (as well as a spot on the cover of the Wine Spectator ) and from the excellent 2018 vintage that Deecanter Magazine has hailed it as one of the top vintages of the last 25 years.This is a no brainer buy and a Napa Cab lover’s feast. I am salivating while writing this.
Mount Veeder Winery is a dramatic estate, founded in 1973 with three vineyards carved high in the hillsides of the Mayacamas Mountains, overlooking southern Napa Valley. The property is 121 acres, mostly forest and brush, out of which only 47 are planted to vine. Mount Veeder is usually the last to harvest in Napa Valley. The result is fruit with highly concentrated flavors – big, bold and brambly – a Cab lover’s feast. Mount Veeder was the first winery in Napa to plant all five red Bordeaux varietals in the same vineyard. The winemaking torch has been passed to the great Janet Myers, who graduated from UC Davis back in 1995, then going on to work her first harvest for Robert Mondavi, the Antinori Family, and Louis M. Martini, all considered pioneers of their craft. She has learned from the absolute best, and has brought all of her expertise and knowledge to Mount Veeder. This wine is a shoe-in for Wine Spectator’s Top 100. This is a tremendous buy and I highly recommend grabbing it now while it lasts. This wine has it all.
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color. The nose absolutely sings of warm blackcurrants, black cherries and mulberries plus fragrant suggestions of chocolate box, lilacs and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with energetic, crunchy black fruit flavors, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. What a bargain price for this classic Napa Cab beauty!” Rating: 92+ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.
Mount Veeder Winery is a dramatic estate with three vineyards carved high in the hillsides of the Mayacamas Mountains, overlooking southern Napa Valley. The property totals 121 acres, mostly forest and brush, out of which only 47 are planted to vine.
Vines ranging from 1,000–1,600 feet in elevation cling to rugged, steep slopes that offer cool conditions that lead to slow ripening, which extends the growing season. Mount Veeder is usually the last to harvest in Napa Valley. The result is fruit with highly concentrated flavors – big, bold and brambly – a Cab lover’s feast.
Mount Veeder Winery was the first in Napa Valley to plant all five red Bordeaux varieties in the same vineyard. Its expertise with these grapes is manifest in Mount Veeder Winery Reserve, a meritage blend of these noble grapes, which are still grown on the property.
