Team Anthem was founded in early 2009 to produce small quantities of handcrafted wines from the most distinctive and promising mountainous vineyards in the Napa Valley. Jeff Ames is Anthem’s head winemaker. An explosive talent, Jeff has made some of California’s most acclaimed wines over the last few years and has a long and brilliant career ahead of him. John Truchard manages the vineyards as a skilled viticulturist, a sound vineyard manager, a successful winery owner and someone with firsthand knowledge of dozens of the area’s top vineyards. John also knows Mt. Veeder – a vastly rewarding yet temperamental AVA. Both Jeff and John are hardworking, no nonsense, low ego professionals - the kind of guys you’d like to sit down with and have a glass of wine. 

The 2012 Mt. Veeder Estate Cabernet is a full-weight intense, mountain Cabernet from Anthem’s Mt. Veeder Estate.  On the palate, it is dense and expressing the estate's hillside terroir with olive, espresso and herbal notes, hints of oak, and a delightfully long finish.
