Mount Veeder 2006 Napa Valley Bordeaux-Style Red Wine

Mount Veeder 2006 Napa Valley Bordeaux-Style Red Wine,
 $29.99-$44.99 (NHLS power-buy), 92 points, is a very good red wine, a big red wine, complex, still young, yet under $30, makes this red wine the one to grab while you can; yes, still a bit pricey, but think ahead: will you buy a special wine for that special someone to celebrate a promotion, a going away gift, or for Christmas? I doubt that this Mount Veeder (Reserve) will be available in NH in December! Just cradle it and put it in a dark-cool safe place until your star taster is ready to receive your wisdom.
Mount Veeder Reserve Red Wine is dark ruby in color, and with a clear rim.
A massive bouquet of Blackberry, Black currant, flowers and cooking spices shimmer-up as you pour.
This is a full-bodied wine with ample acidity, firm tannin, and a rich mouth-feel.
Juicy flavors of Blackberries and currant, with licorice and hints of violet carry-on.
The finish is quite long on spicy Black pepper, grape-skin, and a touch of heat (14.5% alcohol).

Cabernet Sauvignon 86%
Melbec 7%
Petite Verdot 4%
Merlot 2%
Cabernet Franc 1%
