Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from VGS lives up to its namesake. It opens with a blueberry and coffee like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well-balanced, velvety and lush. The flavor profile is a tasty rich chocolate covered blueberry with notes of mild minerality and oak. We also picked up some hints of black licorice as well. The finish is dry and its well-managed tannins linger nicely. Our mini-tasting group thought his Cab would be perfect with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: For 2015, we selected Mount Veeder, our home, to launch the Terroir Collection series of wine. Vibrant aromas of damp forest floor, chaparral, camphor and graphite fill your nose. Additionally, blueberry, blackberry, lavender, and sage are present, followed by notes of vanilla and hazelnut. In the mouth, the wine is right there. The tannins are well ripened and silky smooth. The finish is impressively long…this wine stays and does not leave you. Blueberries and lavender envelope your palate leaving an impression of relative lightness for a medium-full bodied wine. You are going to love it!
