Robert Craig Cellars Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
The 2004 Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon distills the essence of this appellation into a powerful and complex wine that emphasizes pure fruit flavors and supple tannins. The distinctive Mt. Veeder presentation of deep black cherry and cassis carries through from first sip to an impressive finish, while round, ripe mountain tannins provide the backbone for cellaring.
Aroma: A lovely bouquet of deep black cherry, cassis and cedar with underlying mountain perfume.
Flavors: Luscious, pure black cherry and cassis, enhanced with licorice, cocoa, and bay leaf nuances.
Finish: The expressive "Mt. Veeder" character of dark berry and cassis is long and lingering, backed by supple tannins and notes of tobacco and vanilla.
A complex, inviting, and beautifully balanced wine with pure flavors and a fine tannin structure, exhibiting power and grace.
