Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon
Swipe for additional information

Expressing dark ruby and garnet hues with massive depth, the aroma opens to ripe blackcurrant, blackberry jam, blueberry, mushroom and black pepper with very wellintegrated oak spices. The spicy oak has subtle nuances of clove, aromatic cedar, and the overall impression is of a dark chocolate truffle dusted with cocoa powder. The entry is full and promising with dark fruit flavors like dark cherry, plum and blackberry with a hint of espresso, while the tannins are firm but nicely integrated. With lots of depth, great acid balance, this wine is juicy and rich; a great example of a refined mountain Cabernet.
