This Cuvée is crafted with mountain Malbec, Syrah and some of our favorite Cabernet Sauvignon blocks, resulting in a singular, distinctive expression of Mount Veeder. The Malbec brings notes of blueberry, black licorice and chocolate, while the Syrah and Cabernet feature red fruits alongside black currant and wild raspberry. A bit of oak spice, vanilla and clove wander in the background. The tannins here are soft and very approachable. The19 Block Mountain Cuvée is a wine built to enjoy right now, or explore it a bit further down the road as it gains even greater complexity. - Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Mountain Cuvée Block 19, a blend of 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah, is a brilliant wine at a realistic price. This is a wine of great intensity with an opaque purple color, sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with licorice, espresso bean and a touch of chocolate. It's ripe, full-bodied, savory, expansive and lush. Drink it over the next decade.
