2021 MMV Mountain Meets Valley
The 2021 MMV is the darkest ever produced being opaque and near black. The valley floor aromatics jump out of the glass with big raspberry jam and caramel while the mountain fruit pulls the jam aspect back adding some blackcurrant and earth tones. The mouth is very supple and rich with the tannins making themselves present immediately. There are more mountain flavors on the palate; black fruit, peppercorn and gravel minerality. This might be the chalkiest tannin vintage of our MMV, good thing some great mountain acidity is there to balance them out. This big Cabernet will age wonderfully over the next 15-17 years (2036-2038).
