Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 35445


Deep ruby in color with intense dark fruit aromas of black currant, followed by wet earth, mushroom, and caramelized sugar. Hints of dried herb and the classic California bay that is a signature of Mt. Veeder round out the nose. Earthy flavors that evoke the mountain follow, along with dark chocolate, black olive, and sweet bay leaf. The palate is long and rich with classic cassis flavors that linger. The soaring structure and acidity ensure its age-ability for years to come. 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Syrah

Wine EnthusiastPerfumed oak and funky earthiness permeate the nose and palate of this wine, with punchy cedar and bay notes. It lingers long on forest floor, pine and other woodsy components through its medium-bodied ripeness and structure.
