Tasting Notes: 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. Hess watches their Cabernet age in the old barrel chai visitors first see as they walk toward thewinery, and the nearly two-year wait in barrel is proving once again to be well worth it. This, you're going to enjoy!
Galaxy Notes: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec Aged 20 months in 80% new French oak. Our signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate Veeder Hills Vineyard. Its steep slopes and sedimentary clay and shale soils restrict root growth, resulting in Mount Veeder's hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors. True to its appellation, this wine possesses dark concentrated fruit flavors and robust tannins.
