Deep ruby color. Intense dark fruit aroma 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, 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 ageability for years to come.
Aromas of plums and terracotta follow through to a medium to full body, soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious already. Drink now or hold
Wine & Spirits
A clean, foursquare cabernet, this shows its future development in the length and juiciness of its fruit tannins. For now, the wine is sitting in its oak, sappy, smoky and dominating with its extract. Built to cellar.
