Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
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
