Top 7 Cabernets Tasted 10/13

3. Mount Veeder Winery Napa Valley Cabernet (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 7
Average price: $39.99 from 197 stores
Opaque and showing a little age. This is smoky and grilled beefy on the nose with a nice combination of sweet black plum and blackcurrant fruit, smoky herbs, soil tones and vanilla oak. A little tight still in the mouth with tannins that are softly austere supporting a rich, savory core of fruit. There's still a lot of mineral earth and some wood toast here but the fruit, wild blueberry and currant toned with a little bitter chocolate streak to it is emerging on the midplate along with a hint of truffle that persists through the long finish. Still a bit tough and edgy this is a fine rendition of mountain cabernet with length and a touch of throw back rusticity. 91pts

  • 1347763Keith Rector The only thing I agree with in the article is that you don't have to buy $30 or much less $40 Cabernets to get great wines. That price range only fits a very small group of wine buyers. Search out the $20 - $25 Napa Cabs that are not only great, but scores of 90+ pts. *Conn Creek Napa Cab. $17.99 *Franciscan Napa Cab. $17.99 *Simi Alex. V. Cab. $17.99 These are just a few of the outstanding wine specials I am buying now at my favorite Wine Store. Search & you will find.
