Every Mount Veeder harvest is like 3-dimensional chess, moving from uphill side to downhill, testing the cardinal directions, and bringing home only the best. This mates 82% Cabernet Sauvignon with 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. The opening gambit is all warm blackcurrants and mulberries on a bed of lilacs. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, with round, fresh tannins, this flavorful gem could use a quick decant now, but it’ll be check mate in 2023.
Plenty of blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with round, fresh tannins. Lot of blue fruit and walnuts. Then crushed stones with the fruit at the finish. Flavorful, yet not overdone.
