Wine Review: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot & 1% Malbec This deep midnight purple colored red blend VGS is incredible! It opens with a blueberry and black cherry bouquet with hints of pipe tobacco. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well-balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious graphite and refined cassis blend with notes of black tea and blueberry. The finish is dry and its refined tannins show incredible length. Everyone that tired this terrific wine loved it! I would pair perfectly with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Mount Veeder's rugged volcanic soils force the vines to seek out nutrients and in turn produce tiny berries with intensely concentrated fruit: blackberry, blueberry, currant and spices. Accented by aromas of cocoa, baking spices, and sage which always provide a great freshness. In the mouth, the wine is rich, full and ample, with multiple layers of dark fruits. The mountain tannins while present are well integrated supporting the wines structure. The overall impression is a wine of great and distinctive personality: This wine is made to be enjoyed now yet has the potential of long aging that will only enhance its character and complexity.
