Mount Veeder Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Meritage 2003
Wine Enthusiast Review As good as the winerys 03 Cab was, this is even better. Its almost all Cabernet Sauvignon, with a few drops of other Bordeaux varieties, and is so long, rich and deep in flavor, it just has to cellar well. The tannins currently star, and theyre tough and gritty, but six or more years will start to melt them, leaving behind pure, sweet, black fruit. Wine Tasting Notes Dark garnet red. Concentrated plum, tobacco, coffee and cocoa layered with rich plum, black fruit and subtle hints of anise. Rich and full-bodied. Notes of coffee, plum and vanilla fill the mouth that lead to ripe and supple tannins on the lengthy finish.
