MT BRAVE CABERNET SUAVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY 2017
The distinctive, elevated region of Mt Veeder consists of 1000 acres of low yielding vineyard. Wine maker Chris Carpenter, with an already legendary Napa winemaking record with Lokoya and Cardinale, began the Mt Brave project here in 2007.
' The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and opulent but maintains an underlying thread of pure finesse. Blackberries and spice jump from the glass followed by secondary notes of dark chocolate and anise. Perfectly balanced acidity leads to a long, memorable finish. Beguiling now, the 2017 will charm your cellar for years to come.
