Highlights

  • Our location between 1,000 to 1,600 feet means that our eastern-facing vineyards rest above the fogline
  • The long, even 2013 growing season ensures development of complexity and layers of texture
  • We crafted this blend from Cabernet Sauvignon blocks throughout our steeply terraced Mount Veeder vineyard
  • The resulting wine displays a powerful mountain profile while retaining elegance

Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from our estate vineyard located between 1,000-1,600 feet. We crafted this blend from Cabernet Sauvignon blocks throughout our steeply terraced Mount Veeder vineyards. Initial berry aromas give way to spice and dark chocolate. With air the characteristic Mt. Veeder bay aroma wafts out of the glass along with black currant. Supple with good structure and backbone. Flavors of dried herb, anise, and plum on the pallet lead to a long lingering finish. The resulting wine displays a powerful mountain profile while retaining elegance.

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.
