Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1996
When first opened, this revealed a beautiful earthy nose, followed by coffee, cedar, lead pencil and tobacco. This is not a Pauillac? Sweet flavors with good, sweet tannins in the background. Wth time revealed fresh mint in the nose, which reminds me of Leoville las Cases. Well done, plenty of body, all components well integrated. Drinking nicely now, will hold five years. Wonderful with beef steak.
How confusing. Snooth sent me to the reserve. But the wine I just reviewed was not the reserve, it was the regular bottling. CA wines are so confusing!
