Dark ruby (almost black) in color with a reddish rim.
Strong nose of baked cherries, black plums, red currants, light cedar, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, eucalyptus, dark chocolates, spices, black pepper, pencil lead, dirt and herbs.
Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, sweet strawberries, currants, wood, spices, light vanilla, tobacco, light alcohol, espresso, earth, pencil lead, coke and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very tasty, and nicely aged, Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley. Showing a great nose and a complex palate, with a nice mouthfeel.
Not a typical Napa Cabernet, and very unique for the region. A good quality wine with a pretty nose.
This 10 year old is still young and not showing its age much. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Needs 2 hours to open up properly, so be patient.
Tangy and good with food, too. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Great with the brie cheese.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
