Highlights

  • Sourced from our estate vineyard, located between 1,000 and 1,600 feet
  • Handcrafted from our steeply terraced Mount Veeder vineyard blocks
  • Unveils a mouth-filling and powerful palate of ripe, delicious cherries, plum and notes of bay leaf
  • A beautiful, yet powerful mountain wine with lovely texture and a lingering finish

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 120 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Your 2014 Premiere Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Mt. Veeder Winery’s mountain- top estate vineyard located between 1,000 - 1,600 feet. Once a bottle is opened, the aromic characteristics unique to Mt. Veeder waft out of the glass along with a rich and complex nose of plum, cassis and coffee. The wine unveils a mouth-filling and powerful palate of ripe delicious cherries and plum fruit, with notes of bay leaf, black pepper and mocha. It is full and complex with many dimensions - a beautiful, yet powerful mountain wine with lovely texture and a lingering finish.

Janet Myers

Winemaker, Mount Veeder Winery

Winemaker, Janet Myers

Traveling a wine road wasn’t Janet Myers’ original path. In what now seems like another life, she gave up her pursuit of a doctorate in Biological Anthropology to move to London, where she worked in the restaurant industry. Living above a wine shop, she enjoyed sampling the wares of her downstairs neighbor and decided to learn about wine production. “When I realized that this was an industry that combined science and agriculture—which is my family’s background—I enrolled at UC Davis and haven’t looked back.”

The first harvest Janet worked was at the Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley. After graduating from UC Davis with a Master’s in Enology, Janet gave in to wanderlust. Wanting to connect to her roots by spending time in Italy (her mother’s ancestral home country), Janet turned to the Antinori winemaker in Italy, who immediately offered her a harvest internship at the Santa Cristina Estate in Chianti.

Country born: United States

Education: Masters in Enology from UC Davis

Internships at Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa, Antinori in Chianti, and in Australia's Margaret River Region.

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Janet's winemaking philosophy is ultimately to showcase and highlight the flavors and personality of the vineyard she's working with. Her goal is to let the fruit shine, to let the vineyard be what it wants to be - while balancing ripeness of fruit with age-worthiness, and richness of texture with finesse.
