Entrepreneur Wines 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount Veeder, Napa Valley
Mount Veeder, in close proximity to the cool breezes of the San Pablo Bay and unique soils of an ancient seabed, provides a profound reflection of "sense of place", or terroir. This AVA (American Viticultural Area) imparts a notable distinctiveness specific only to Mount Veeder.
With a captivating dark ruby color and intense concentrated edges, this Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich and intense aromas of blueberry, cigar box, toffee and orange peel. The flavors are velvety and well-integrated with nuances of black currant, plum, rose pedal and dark chocolate. The finish is lingering and the minerality really shines through. ~Tasting notes by Denise Cody, Chief Operating Angel
94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot
Mt. Veeder AVA, Napa Valley, CA
The 2012 Mt Veeder is currently tasting spectacular with no signs of weakening. Drink or cellar through 2034+.
