Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012
Mt. Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is a skillful blend of fruit from the Mount Veeder ranch and other Napa Valley hillside grapes. This rich California red offers concentrated layers of ripe fruit, spice, chocolate, vanilla, oak, herb and savory earth character with full body, excellent structure and texture and a long finish.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Nice Cabernet. Rich and smooth. Cheers!
A bit tannic
off topic The ad for the Trapiche malbec is good But the one you must try Trapiche Bonarda origin Italy very dark color, blackcurrant, prunes, very ripe cherry taste. Lite on the oak. tannins soft very easy drinking not extremely complex. For the price nice product. nice with lamb, beef, Nachos, all Italian dishes.
Off topic Cup cake wine advertised That one I tried last week for fun need to know (sacrificed myself) I cannot comment on any of those wines...sorry But the wine called cup cake I can!! What a terrible wine, notes of chemical unbalanced awful, bitter fruit juice. I've worked in the wine industry (for 20 years) 5 years as a wine consultant. A beaujolais nouveau would be better we all know how fast they are made. your friend in wine M.J.
Very dark and attractive in the glass. "Hefty" nose--earthy with hints of spice. Very nice on the palate. The texture seems satiny smooth. Some cassis and peppercorn flavors. Tannins appear to have been tamed. Nice acid. This looks like a good food wine. US$27.99 at Total Wine in 2010.
A little pepper, spice and currants on the nose, a lot of earthy aromas. The palate offers a tannic punch with layers of dark fruit/berries combined with dark chocolate, full in body and needs some time. This was my 4th wine tasted at the Franciscan winery and was paired with a Vella Dry Jack Cheese, a very powerful cheese.
External Reviews for Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The wine is dense and concentrated, which is indicative of the small vines, low yields, and tiny berries of the mountainside locale. The dark, brambly fruit and sweet herbal notes evoke the forest and bay trees adjacent to the vineyards.
Mount Veeder is a magical place a rare and beautiful spot where vines cling to the steep hillsides, producing tiny, concentrated berries that give our wines their big, bold, brambly fruit character.
Deep ruby. Aromas of ripe black currant, dark cherry, and lilac interlace with black pepper, bay leaves, coffee, and toasted oak to create a rich, dense nose. Powerful, rich, and textured notes of dark cherry, ripe plum, caramel, and vanilla flavors weave
Pleasant loamy earth, dried herb and cedar notes shadow dried currant and savory herb flavors. Full-bodied and complete, if shy on extra facets. Drink now through 2018.
A good wine to drink now for its sweet, ripe berry and mocha flavors and smoky coat of oak. It has smooth tannins and a spicy finish. Give it a good decant to let it breathe for a few hours.
Mount Veeder Winery has their vines planted up to 1600 feet on slopes resembling a large staircase. They enjoy a microclimate of fog, cool mountain nights and warm days.
Experience the magic of Mount Veeder as you enjoy our Cabernet Sauvignon's full-bodied fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry, layered with distinctive cocoa, tobacco and cedar notes.
