Newton Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Deep, dark and cool with classic varietal cassis with inky ripe fruits, charcoal, aniseed, mint and rolled tobacco. Plush rich and intense with a freshness and clarity of fruit. Fine graphite like tannins provide a distinct backbone to the complex and vibrant black fruit characters. Long fine elegant and intense.
Newton was founded in 1977 by English businessman Peter Newton and his Chinese wife Su Hua. Peter Newton was already renowned as a pioneer of winemaking in the Napa Valley, having founded the Sterling Winery near Calistoga in the 1960s. The Newtons transformed one square mile of rolling hillside in Spring Mountain into one of the Napa Valley’s most prestigious estates, whose wines have graced the official dinners of several US presidents.
