2007 Mountain Cuvee

Blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah from this new, tiny Mt. Veeder winery. The color and nose is dark, rich and spicy. Black berry fruits, black pepper, French roast coffee and cedar. Full bodied and substantial in the mouth with good acidity and exceptional length. A good decanting will elevate your enjoyment immensely. It’s classic steak & potatoes wine. The more roasted, peppery and hearty the food, the better for a perfect match.
Spotted Owl “Mountain Cuvée” comes from the top of the Mayacamas Mountain range, on the Sonoma County side. It’s “almost Mt. Veeder.”  Rolando Herrera, winemaker (He owns and makes Mi Sueño wines). 500 cases made.
