Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Veeder opens with a black currant bouquet with hints of anise, cherry-cola, chocolate and damp wood. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a boysenberry and cassis blend with a nicely integrated minerality. We also detected hints of anise, cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit show nice length. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with slow cooked short ribs or a New York strip steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon is meant to show all that is Mt. Veeder without overt tannins and the 2014 is a great example of that proposition. Black and red berry characters with hints of herb, Asian spice, espresso and toast combine with floral notes, weight and a wonderful finish.
