An earthy bold red with a nice balance of acidity and fruit. This has a minty finish. I like this but I don’t love it fresh out of the bottle. It will be interesting to see how it tastes after breathing. Tom: This is dry and tannic, tasting of bitter chocolate and dark fruit. Although it’s dry, it has a “big” fruit taste, so it seems new world rather than old world. This is very good, and I would definitely get this Veo Grande Cabernet Sauvignon again.
