2012 Mt Veeder Napa Cabernet
This cabernet sauvignon has big, bold aromas; lots of raspberry, mocha, and vanilla with notes of cedar. Tobacco and smoke come through with a hint of cassis and jam which adds complexity to this full bodied wine. The entry is dense, with the cassis and raspberry character continuing to please the palate as the vanilla and oak notes come to play. This wine is great now but can be laid down until 2019 or beyond.
