Handwritten 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount Veeder 750 ml
High above the valley floor, to the west of Yountville, Oakville, and Rutherford, the southern reaches of the Mayacamas Mountains are crowned by the venerable Mount Veeder. An ancient volcano with soils deposited The bouquet for this incredible mountain Cabernet is elegant and ethereal with lifted notes of fresh floral blossoms that counterpoint an intense core of red, black and blue berries. Sweet baking spices compliment the bright aromatics which are all tied tight with a ribbon of velvety melted chocolate.
Much like the nose, this wine is vibrant and lively on the palate with a fresh acid structure that carries the wine into a rounded, easy finish. Our Mount Veeder Cabernet is beautiful and elegant in every way and while the structure exists for this wine to age at least another decade, it is utterly enchanting in its current state. Our recommended pairings include smoked ham hock and white bean cassoulet, grilled pork chops with a fig and red wine reduction sauce and filet mignon.
