The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and burly, but also quite pleasing for a young Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, lavender, bacon fat spice and licorice fill out the wine's mid-weight frame nicely. Plush and unctuous through to the finish, Mt. Veeder's Cabernet Sauvignon is a real overachiever in this vintage, as the extra kick of volume gives the wine an unusual level of opulence that works nicely to balance some of the more imposing structural elements in the wine.
