Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee 2014
Wine EnthusiastThis hearty blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot is a great go-to wine for a crowd. Cabernet leads the way with cedar, cranberry and tobacco notes, clipped by sizable tannin. As it opens, layers of dense raspberry and vanilla flavors unfurl.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Mountain Cuvee is a blend of 56% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec and 1% Petite Verdot. Deep garnet purple in color, it is scented of ripe plums, black currants, spice box and dried Mediterranean herbs. The full-bodied palate provides plenty of mouth-filling black fruit and spice flavors, with velvety tannins and ample freshness, leading to a long, relatively uncomplicated finish. Great value!
