Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
Small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec are blended into this impressive wine, which is reduced slightly on the nose. The flavors of cassis and red cherry turn juicy and tart on the midpalate before exposing complex lengths of tobacco and clove. This wine will be best enjoyed in time, so shoot for 2020 through 2024.
Chunky and chewy, this rustic, gravel- and mineral-laced effort is marked by graphite and dense dark berry flavors and potent tannins. Will benefit from a few years of cellaring. Best from 2021 through 2032.
