Lot 420 | 2021 Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml


$80/bottle under the original label

Lot 420 comes to us from an established winery in the Napa benchlands. On the streets this stuff goes for $80/bottle, and it’s the main component used in the winery’s $130/bottle Napa Valley blend. But we know a guy who knows a guy, so basically, we got an IN and we’re offering it to you today, out of our own personal stash.

Wanna get high?

Lot 420 has been on our radar for quite some time, and with that in mind, we tried to think of all the fun options on the table: an actual weed wine? Licensing deal with Willie Nelson? Dead & Company collab for their final tour? Hell, we've had some interesting typos get past the TTB over the years (unintentionally), so could we slip this one through as a "Mt. Weeder" wine?

Well, a weed wine poses a number of shipping issues for obvious reasons, we never heard back from Willie or the Dead, and of course this would be the typo the TTB caught and sent back for revision. 

Nevertheless, when we came up on Lot 420, we knew we scored some real dank stuff.

High, like really, really high, on the slopes of Mt. Veeder, under the glow of a waning crescent moon, the fruit was plucked by the hands of virgin nymphs who painstakingly removed all the seeds and stems before packing it in French oak for 20 months. Needless to say, this is some super smooth stuff.

Pouring deep ruby with an almost impenetrable core, the nose is equally dark with concentrated black fruit, dark chocolate, black tea, and earthy tones haloed by barrel spices and a dried herb bouquet. The palate is open knit and more Old World in style with dark fruit, clay pot, and new leather framed by plentiful uniform, well integrated tannins bolstered by medium acidity and uplifted spice. The finish is long and dry with resonant vanilla and further dark fruits. While drinkable in the near term with a healthy decant, your patience will be rewarded for a few years in cellar. This is upper-echelon, high-altitude juice folks, grab it before it's too late...

And, you guessed it, only 420 cases available.
