2009 Mt. Brave Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Nestled on the western ridge of the Mayacamas Mountains, the Mt. Brave Vineyard succeeds in its struggle to produce fruit of great distinction, as found in this Cabernet Sauvignon, brimming with the violets, minerality, and blueberry aromas one expects from Mt. Veeder. Expressive blue fruit flavors are joined by wet shale and mountain tannins massaged to a mouth-filling crescendo.
