Some of Mt. Veeder’s best, 2015 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is some of the best wine the mountain has to offer. A burly wine, with a touch of Merlot and Cabernet Franc blended in the keep things interesting. Cassis, anise, blue fruits and a touch of orange peel. Grainy tannin and bright acidity tie everything together on its way to a supple finish.
Composed of 87.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 1.5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder gives up notions of crème de cassis, violets, baker's chocolate, licorice and yeast extract with a touch of beef drippings. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully expressive, the palate gives lovely ripe tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy.
