2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mt. Veeder Estate
TASTING NOTES: Sourced from high atop the rugged Mt. Veeder AVA, vineyard, this intense and powerful Cabernet is an extraordinary example of the potential that comes from fruit cultivated at a high elevation on volcanic soils. Secondary notes of vanilla and blackberry pie, round out this full-bodied mountain Cabernet
Sauvignon. This wine will be best enjoyed now through 2035.
FOOD PAIRING: We recommend this bold, robust Cabernet with the traditional choice of steak, burgers, or slow-braised beef dishes. Anything with a bit of spice or charring will complement the rich fruit flavors and tannins. Full-flavored mushrooms or foraged wild mushrooms, have an intense umami flavor that marries well with the intensity of this wine.
