Mt Veeder cab 2004 how did it get so pricey?


i have a wine that a friend gave me in 2007, a Mt Veeder Winery Cab 2004. I found it in the back of the closet and just for kicks looked it up and it's now worth $400 bucks? could this be right? can someone who knows anything about wine how this can be? I thought it was like a $25 bottle. clearly i like drinking wine but have little knowledge of it. thanks!

  1. Where did you see it sold for $400?

    Is it likely some super premium Napa winery has a cabernet that's designated "Mount Veeder" as a sub-appellation?

    1. You are right, it's worth about 30 bucks. If it has been stored upright in the back of your warm closet for the past 6 years..........it's worth pouring in your glass tonight to have with your pizza :)

      1. Actually, it probably sold for $25 when first released, and sells for about $40 now. If it has been sitting upright in a warm closet for these last 5 years, it probably isn't worth even that. But you can always try it and see.
