Winemaker's Notes:

The Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 is dark garnet in color. Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. Floral and black fruit notes dominate the palate, with rich jammy fruit to round it out. A big Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot
