This unique wine is a classic Mount Veeder Winery Reserve blend, sourced entirely from our high-elevation Rosenquist and North Ranches. Cabernet Sauvignon drives the blend with richness and concentration of flavor, offering lovely blackberry and cassis notes. It is rounded beautifully by small amounts of Merlot, which adds notes of currant and green peppercorn and Malbec, contributing lush, ripe blueberry and wonderful, silky texture. The final blend is fruit-driven and structured with a supple mid-palate, backed by notes of coffee, toast and a touch of spicy bay, that are an ever-present indicator of Mount Veeder derived wines.

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.
