Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
Wine AdvocateAbsolutely stunning, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is a beauty. Notes of charcoal, blueberry liqueur, black currants, licorice, incense and violets jump from the glass of this 93.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc blend that was aged in 91% new French oak. This full-bodied 2011 is a tremendous success for the vintage, again reflecting that mountain sites often did very well, and taste like a completely different vintage than the valley floor 2011s. This savory, fleshy wine has low acidity and ripe tannin, so it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more.
Wine SpectatorWell-centered on a rich core of vivid dark berry, currant, black licorice, cedar and spicy herb flavors, this tilts toward dryer tannins on the finish, yet retains a fresh fruitiness. Drink now through 2022. 4,533 cases made.
