2016 Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon TEST
"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder gives up scents of crushed red and black plums, fresh blackcurrants and blackberry compote with touches of garrigue, lavender, underbrush and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate sports wonderful intensity and tension, with a very firm, grainy frame and beautiful freshness supporting the floral and earth-inspired layers through the long finish."
97 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mount Veeder) is the most complete and alluring wine in this range. Powerful and vertical in the glass, with tremendous structure, the 2016 is all class. Beams of supporting tannin provide the framework for this super-expressive wine. Dark red and black fruit, savory herb, licorice, espresso and menthol add raciness and energy. Elegant and nuanced, the 2016 just needs a bit of time in bottle to show all it's got."
