82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot,
3% Other Red Varietals.
Concentrated dark cherry and cassis, with
bright fruit character, a well-structured
palate, and fine mountain tannins. Big yet
approachable, the mouthfeel is full and
round, with good body and balance. Sweet
oak notes complement the vibrant fruit,
and the long finish is graced by flavors of
cocoa, cassis, and rich mountain character.
"Deep crimson hue. Pretty nose with maple, vanilla and black cherry fruit. Soft mouth-feel with a silky tannin impressions and elegant integration of berry fruit and acidity. Tart, tangy close with blackberry, leather and coffee impressions." 91 Points
The Wine News
The Mount Veeder cab is a wonderful wine in the $30 range. It can stand up to other cabs that are much higher in price! This wine is a well-kept secret and should be widely enjoyed due to it's big, robust and structure containing a gorgeous balance of dark fruits, oak and vanilla.
