This Small Block Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from legendary Napa vineyards notable in their own right. The Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper vineyard from Oakville is the backbone of the blend, a vineyard first planted in 1877 to grapes, prunes and walnuts, typical of the time.
Our signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate Veeder Hills Vineyard. The elevation of this vineyard ranges from 600-1,120 feet, and its steep slopes and sedimentary clay and shale soils restrict root growth, resulting in Mount Veeder’s hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors.
Located near the summit of Mount Veeder, our Small Block Malbec from the Veeder Summit Vineyard is supple and sensuous, with flavors of blackberries and dark fruits along with a touch of jam and peppery spice that allows the wine to linger.
This Small Block Viognier from our Veeder Summit Vineyard is dry in style and creates an assemblage of white peach and citrus blossom, honeysuckle and jasmine topped with ripe pear with a surprisingly creamy mouthfeel with a touch of tartness.
