Joseph George Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Mount Veeder Napa Valley
Tasting Notes: This is a medium to dark ruby red wine with black fruit aromas of licorice, cassis and cherry with nuances of clove, cinnamon & nutmeg. Flavors are similar with black berries and allspice. The mid-palate is full and coating with high texture. Nuances of oak can be found in the finish, with it's additional bottle aging time before release. Delicious right now yet can age 5-7 years.
