Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Look for black berry, cherry vanilla, mulberry, cassis and smoky oak in the nose and mouth of this smooth and sultry wine. The rich velvety tannins reveal the rugged, mountainous location of the estate. Typically a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This will be a terrific wine to serve with a grilled Rib Eye and baked potato.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a brawny, leathery expression of the variety, explosive on the palate in brambly blackberry and black cherry. Leather, coffee and tobacco give it additional edge and savory qualities that work within its full-bodied, ripe and rich context.
VinousThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely delicious, mid-weight wine to drink now and over the next few years. This is a decidedly fruit, soft mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, but all the elements are nicely balanced throughout. Bright red cherry, plum and mint add further shades of nuance throughout. Best of all, the 2014 is very fairly priced by Napa Valley standards.
