2016 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

Mount Veeder Winery's Cabernet is a bold, full-bodied wine with a deep ruby color. This Cabernet is rich with 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. This Cabernet was awarded 94 Points by Wine Spectator.
