Anniversary 55 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one from Mount Veeder.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, espresso, cola, light herbs, earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward, with black fruits, chocolates, cedar, light vanilla, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn and herbs.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from the great 2016 vintage. Already drinking very nicely, even right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours in the decanter.

Showing nice complexity with a great, spicy mouthfeel.

I had it over a year ago, and it is drinking even better now. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.
