Review: 2018 Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Mount Veeder’s latest is a classically structured Napa cabernet sauvignon, rich with blackberry and currant but filtered through a fine layer of bittersweet tannins. Gentle notes of rosemary and thyme emerge as the wine develops in the glass, but the finish runs to a fresher red berry character, infused with a hint of tart cranberry and some tea leaf. Ready to drink now, but it has many years ahead of it if you want to hold on to a bottle.
