Wine - Cabernet Sauvignon - 2014 - Anthem
This property features some interesting recent history like... it was the original piece of land used by Jessup Cellars to make their wines (a small crush-pad and cave were built for their operations – and still exist on site).
Anthem currently makes their wine at a nearby winery, but eventually Julie and Justin Arbuckle (owners) would like to move the operations on site – featuring part of the existing winery and crush-pad in their plans. Their vineyards are about 400 feet in elevation (among the lower vineyards in the Mt. Veeder appellation). To the east, their property drops off dramatically into the Oak Knoll AVA. The pleasant breezes on an otherwise fairly warm summer day kept the property cool; whichis typical of Mt. Veeder.
