Anthem Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder 2016
Dense, layered and structured estate Cab with 7% Cab Franc and 7% Petite Verdot from Mt. Veeder, overlooking Napa town. Jeff Ames (Rudius, Tor & more), winemaker. Smell and taste crème de cassis, baked blackberries, anise liqueur, crushed violets, and pronounced minerality. Firm tannins soften quickly, bit more acid than the usual makes this an especially good accompaniment with dinner any time over the next 10 or so years.
