Kukeri Wines Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley, California

Inky in color with a short reddish rim.

On the nose blackberries, blueberries, cooked cherries, licorice, cedar, light vanilla, earth, light bell pepper, spices, celery, tobacco, dark chocolates, coffee, vegetables, light alcohol, peppercorn and pencil lead.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco leaf, licorice, graphite, peppercorn, vanilla, cola and light vegetables.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity on the nose and palate.

Still very young, but already enjoyable even by itself. Showing a little bit of alcohol, which would phase out with bottle time.

Good by itself or with food. Rich, opulent, fruit forward and ripe.

Needs time to open up, it took 2 hours to bring out the tannins and the complexity. As it opens up earth and vegetable notes show up and make it more interesting. Delicious once it opens up.

A good quality wine with good potential to become 95+ point wine. Will age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

I paired it with cheeses, but will pair very nicely with a big piece of steak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French Oak barrels (40% new) for 26 months. A very tiny production of only five barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Tangy and spicy on the finish.

Still young, but already enjoyable. Earthier than I expected, and it might be a factor if it’s youth.

Already showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity. This Single Vineyard feels like a left bank Bordeaux.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the tannins.

Will pair nicely with grilled or roasted meats. I paired it with Brie cheese and olives.
