The Mountain Tower

Vineyard Series


Aged 20 months in 40% new French oak. 52% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot.


All three of these blocks lie quite close together on the steep north-facing side of WeatherEye. Here, full ripeness is reached while preserving great varietal character and lively acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

Enticing aromas of black plum, Ambrosia pluot, blueberry, whole wild strawberry, tobacco leaf, scorched earth, powdered cacao nibs, blood orange bitters, burnished cedar, and juniper berry. This wine glides through the palate, leaving a slightly dusted trail of black raspberry, dark plum, sun-warmed terra cotta, Baker’s chocolate, and dried herbs. While highlighted by finesse and balance, this wine has the power to age 20 plus years in the cellar.

Scores & Reviews



The 2021 The Mountain Tower checks in as 50% Cabernet Franc, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Merlot. Beautiful red and blue fruits, spring flowers, smoky oak, and cedarwood notes, as well as a brilliant minerality, emerge from the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with ripe, building tannins and fabulous purity of fruit.
