Mount Veeder Winery 2015 Reserve Red
Beautifully layered aromas of ripe blackberry, dark cherry, and cassis meld with savory notes of white pepper, cardamom, and complex sandalwood and rosemary. Seamlessly dense cassis and dark berries lead to a rich, full palate that is round with juicy, fleshy dark fruit. The smooth tannins are integrated and deftly woven. Thee wine is bright and well balanced with a graciously powerful character that finishes with long, bold, and intense flavors.
Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot.
Lots of dark plums, morello cherries, chocolate-studded blackberry cake and some ash undertones. The palate is dark-fruited with dusty tannins, pretty acidity and a chew finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec and petit verdot. Drink in 2020.
