2012 Renteria Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Tasting Notes: The 2012 Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense concentration and beautiful extraction, but is also elegant with balanced tannins. The aromas are full of dark fruit character with fresh herbal and tobacco notes. These old vines deliver supple tannins along with complexity and excellent depth that allows the wine to age very well for the next decade or so.
Winemaker's Notes: The 2012 vintage was a classic vintage for Napa Valley from start to finish. "Classic" and "perfect" are just two accolades being bestowed upon the 2012 Napa Valley growing season and harvest. Textbook conditions saw near-ideal Spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until Napa Valley's treasured wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar. The Tambor Vineyard, found on the south side of Mt. Veeder, features clay loam soils and was planted in 1992 to the Weimer clone on rootstock 3309. This vineyard is cane pruned and yields 2 tons per acre.
