Watermark-Cabernet Sauvignon-Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley-2012

Cabernet Sauvignon
Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley


Up Mt Veeder we go, 2000 feet high, for these grapes. “Wildcat Vineyard” 100% Cab Sauv. Watermark is owned/made by Phil Steinschriber, Diamond Creek’s long-time (and still) winemaker. Cold soak 4 days before ferment, barreled down to 100% new French oak to finish fermentation. This is BIG & RICH, showing dark berry and cherry liqueur, cocoa, faint soil/truffle/tobacco. Has “mountain tannins” that soften with air. The rich fruit soaks up the barrel so it doesn’t’ taste particularly “oaky.” 335 cases made.
