Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

SKU 1411



Winery Notes:

Deep ruby in color with wonderfully rich, ripe berries and summer cherry pie on the nose, complemented by hints of earth, cedar, rosemary, and dried sage. A supple, well-structured palate that's full, almost juicy, with a slightly mineral edge. Dark cassis fruit layers with bright blackberry, building complexity with layers of mocha and peppercorn. The wine is dry but finishes with a lovely, delicate sweetness derived from its fruit character and 20 months in fine oak barrels.

Wine SpectatorThis displays a pure core of black cherry, cassis and plum puree flavors before the back end clamps down, revealing grippy tar and apple wood notes. Shows freshness and drive, with a pervasive sagebrush detail. Give this time to round into form.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine offers outstanding value, made in a soft, approachable style that still retains complexity and full-bodied flavor. Thick, chalky tannins give it a grip that melds well against lush offerings of dark chocolate and black cherry encased in toasted oak.
