Background

Wine has been crafted from Mt. Veeder soils since the early 1860s. Along with other Napa winemaking pioneers such as Charles Krug and Agoston Haraszthy, Captain Stalham Wing, who arrived in 1853, showed the first Mt. Veeder wine at the Napa County Fair in 1864.

Mt. Veeder is the largest AVA in the Napa Valley, established in 1993, but numbers don’t really tell the story. The mountain is 25 square miles, or 15,000 acres, stretching from the Carneros to Oakville, and down the grade to Glen Ellen. Yet just 1,000 acres are planted to grapes, less than 2 percent of Napa Valley’s production with the lowest average yields in the region. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted variety, but Malbec does exceptionally well here.


Tasting Notes

The Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon is meant to show all that is Mt. Veeder without overt tannins and the 2014 is a great example of that proposition. Black and red berry characters with hints of herb, Asian spice, espresso and toast combine with floral notes, weight and a wonderful finish.
