Product Overview

The 2014 release of the Robert Craig Mount Veeder Caberent Sauvignon is exceptionally polished and dense. More inviting in youth than the 2013, the 2014 Mount Veeder is plush and rich, with deep, dark cassis, cocoa flake and mountain floral tones, with a broad polished middle palate and a long, lingering finish. This wine has tremendous balance to enjoy young, but the 2014 Mount Veeder will cellar beautifully for years to come.

Varietal Composition: 88 Cabernet Sauvignon, 11 Merlot, 1 Malbec
Appellation: Mount Veeder/Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 18 months in French oak, 80 percent new & 20 percent 2nd year. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder comes from a vineyard once owned by the late Robin Williams called Pym Rae (now owned by the Tesseron family from Bordeaux) that sits at an elevation of 1,800 feet. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are all present in this full-bodied wine that displays the high-elevation bluer fruits that Mt. Veeder can provide. There is a floweriness and full-bodied richness, big extract, but great balance and no rusticity. This beauty should drink well for at least 25-30 years."

93+ Points - Vinous Media
"Intense mountain tannins give the 2014 much of its personality. Smoke, cured meats, licorice and spices fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. This is an especially huge, dramatic Cabernet Sauvignon, especially within the context of the year. A surge of black cherry, smoke and chocolate leaves a lasting impression."
