2018 ANTHEM MOUNT VEEDER NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$135.00

Julie and Justin Arbuckle founded Anthem with specific intentions to produce hedonistically rich, powerful wines from intensely concentrated mountain fruit. After interviewing over 100 applicants, they chose Jeff Ames as their winemaker because of his experience interning at Penner-Ash in Oregon and later working for Thomas Rivers Brown as his assistant winemaker at Outpost, Schrader, and TOR before launching his brand Rudius Wines in 2005.

Anthem’s estate on Mount Veeder remains cool, even on the warmest summer afternoons, due to its elevation and sea breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay. In the 2018 vintage, the weather was more temperate than usual and produced grapes with intense flavor, elegant structure, and fine tannins. Jeff made the resulting harvest into this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that’s unbelievably delicious now, with a capacity to age in the cellar for more than 20 years.

2018 ANTHEM MOUNT VEEDER NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Tasting Notes from Wine Enthusiast ‘Cellar Selection’, “Structured, with grip and length, this wine is ripe and rich in style with tremendous tannins. Chalky in texture, it provides layers of cassis, vanilla and clove, with the mountain appellation’s signature earthiness and herbal underrates. This will do well to cellar; enjoy best from 2028–2038.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 95 POINTS

MASSIVE – This wine is SO BIG, it’s backwards right now! And that’s a GOOD thing! You can Throw a case down in the cellar, and enjoy for decades… Nostalgic: when I first started selling wines about 10-years-ago, I had a guy from Texas call me, and he said, “Son, I want a Napa Cab, that will just PUNCH me right in the Mouth!” This is for you sir! 🙂 Cheers and Happy Saturday Y’all! Hope this makes you smile… from the highly praised 2018 Vintage, this is a very special VIP EXCLUSIVE  wine… we can HOLD until you are ready to ship, but please don’t miss it… this is a MASSIVE NAPA CAB – Cheers!
