2014 ANTHEM MOUNT VEEDER ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$135.00

* Pedigree: The Anthem Cabernet is all about balance, length and escalating intensity, and the 2014 is stacked with individualistic, complex and savory flavors that are characteristic of Mount Veeder terroir.

* Winemaker: Anthem was expertly crafted by Jeff Ames, who mentored under Thomas River Brown at Schrader, Maybach, Outpost and TOR before becoming head winemaker at TOR in 2005. Jeff is also the owner/winemaker at Rudius, which was my #1 wine in 2019.

* Napa Cab: The final blend incorporates 4 of the top 5 Bordeaux Varietals and was cut from famous clones including Cult clones 337 and 7. The fruit was sourced from an Estate Vineyard on Mount Veeder where the majestic vines yield less than 3 tons per acre of small, powerful berries with intense flavors.

* VIP Exclusive: Normally $135/btl, and with your VIP Exclusive price, this is case-worthy for the most discerning collectors, and highly recommended for fans of high-end Napa Cab.

2014 ANTHEM MOUNT VEEDER ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Master Sommelier Tasting Notes: “This blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot, perfectly balances the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Anthem, and reveals a tantalizing blend of power and elegance, beautifully showcasing both red and black fruits crushed blackberries, red currants, ripe blueberries, intermingled with purple flowers, a touch of sweet vanilla spice, wrapped in slightly dusty tannins. The palate is rich, but not overpowering, fleshy, without any flabbiness, with deeply penetrating flavors. While absolutely gorgeous now after a little time in the glass, this one promises another 16-20 years of decadent life.” Kevin Vogt 95 POINTS

Ed’s Notes: “We recently visited a restaurant where this exact wine and vintage was fetching $350 on the wine menu! Glad I brought my own. What I like about Mt. Veeder is the fresh and elegant undertones of each sip. I think some Napa Cabs are a little too big for food… my doctor says I can’t eat steak everyday anymore 🙂 and sometimes I want a wine to compliment a meal, and Mt Veeder is my go-to for pairing. I love this wine with garlic roasted chicken and root vegetables, and it was spot-on with a Caesar salad as well… after the meal it was lovely to sip, and watch the fireplace with chocolate covered strawberries, suggesting the acidity is perfect. Well crafted from a Master Winemaker, I highly recommend 6-bottles to cellar the next 15-years, and 6-bottles to enjoy now at your favorite restaurant. (case worthy) Cheers!”
