Description

On the western ridge of the Mayacamas mountain range, at an elevation of 600 metres, the Mount Veeder vineyard grows on nutrient poor ancient volcanic soil, forcing the vines to work hard to extract sustenance.

The result is tiny berries of immense concentration, which are treated and fermented with minimal intervention, producing a wine of exceptional power, a rock solid tannin profile, and the potential to age for a half decade.

From the first vintage of this wine in 1995, off a selection of blocks on the steep mountainous terrain on Mount Veeder, it was, and remains the textbook definition of peak Napa Cabernet; iconic, cult, and extremely limited.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, resulting in the purest expression of place.


99 Points - "Usually my favourite in many vintages, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is the most backward of the 2014s and actually seems to require 4-5 years of bottle age. The wine has the telltale signs of Mt. Veeder - blackberry and blueberry fruit infused with considerable floral nuances. This wine has all that, then hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, fruit extraction, and layers of blackberry and blueberry fruit. It is full-bodied and opulent, but finishes with some structure and ripe tannin. This is a magnificent wine - full-throttle, extremely pure, and incredibly well-balanced. Give it 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades." Robert Parker-November 2016 (Wine Advocate)

98 Points - "I've not yet visited the Napa Valley, in large part because I can't seem to drag myself away from Italy.Rich, dark chocolate, earthy, vanilla and baking spices, blue and black fruit, slumbering perfume of violets. Full-bodied, mixed berries and crème de cassis, sticky tannin is laid on thick, laying a base of grip and traction, intense flavour, sumptuous and powerful, distinct 'mineral' feel, with a superb long finish, ripe dense tannin not letting you forget where it's from, or going to. Awesome wine, but almost painfully young at present." Gary Walsh-April 2019 (Winefront)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
