Cabernet Sauvignon
Mount Veeder

10 cases produced


  • Situated in our Mount Veeder vineyard, Block 203 was deemed the very best of the vintage
  • Block 203 is 3.5 acres, was planted in 2000 and is located on an eastern-facing slope
  • We hand-picked and sorted berries before crushing, then macerated the wine on the skins for 45 days
  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; inky, cassis character and firm structure are Napa Valley at its best

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. During the outstanding 2014 vintage, Newton’s Block 203 was identified early on as the parcel that represented the very best of the vintage, the vineyard and the nested appellation. The berries for your Premiere Napa Valley Mount Veeder 100% Cabernet Sauvignon were hand-picked and individually sorted before crushing. Fermentation lasted 10 days, followed by a further 35 days of post-maceration. The final wine expresses inky, cassis qualities and a fine gravelly structure. A wine certain to cellar well for a generation.
