Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our sustainably farmed, single-estate vineyard on Mount Veeder
  • Vineyard is above the fogline, with elevations up to 1,800 feet—ideal for ripening and tannin development
  • Rocky soils provide adequate drainage and contribute mineral richness to your wine’s complexity
  • Native-yeast fermented; bottled unfined and unfiltered for the finest expression of mountain terroir

The Mt. Brave vineyard site sits high atop Mt. Veeder at an elevation of 1,400 to 1,800 feet. With such great heights comes labor intensive winegrowing approaches as thin, rocky soils and steep slopes make water retention a challenge and erosion a threat. These dramatic conditions result in tiny berries with intense flavor and extended sun exposure helps develop flavor and ripen tannins. Your Premier Napa Valley Mt. Brave wine is meant to show all that is Mt. Veeder. Aged in French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered this wine is from the very best blocks Mt. Brave has to offer.
