This newly released 2019 is the second vintage from Pulido-Walker's estate Mt. Veeder property, which encompasses 15 acres of vineyard. Guided by their winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, after six years of letting the vines mature, they were ready to launch this newest single vineyard of Pulido-Walker. Like their 2018, this is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. As we’ve been hearing from many wineries and tasting for ourselves, the 2019 vintage is already showing great promise. For Pulido-Walker’s estate vineyard, Thomas said, “Once again we found ourselves with the greatest quantity of the clone we’re liking the best from this site: 685. ¬The late-spring rains didn’t affect fruit set here, and the extended hang time gave us excellent ripeness and lots of options for dialing in the blend. What resonates for those who experienced this estate’s inaugural 2018 vintage is the depth of flavor in this uniquely complete wine—a testament to years of meticulous planning and thoughtful clonal selection and planting.” The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder Estate is “a stunning success. It's wonderfully perfumed, with floral-herbal notes reminiscent of violets and sage accenting cassis and black raspberry-chocolate chip ice cream, yet without any trace of actual sweetness. Full-bodied and concentrated, it's nevertheless fresh and vibrant, with a long finish framed by softly dusty tannins. Wow!” 98 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
