Watermark Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder, Napa Valley 2014
Fruit comes from Wildcat vineyard on Mt Veeder, 2000 feet high. The winemaker is Phil Steinschreiber, who has spent more than 20 years at Diamond Creek. This is a big and rich Cabernet, but not overbearing, with aromas of black cherry, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, bay leaf, iron, and fennel. The acidity is bright with chucky tannins that soften with air. A forward, very approachable Cab.
