Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

Good full ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, cassis, licorice, minerals and chocolatey oak. Rich, plush and sweet, with a pliant, three-dimensional texture to the flavors of black fruits, spices and cocoa powder. Builds impressively and spreads out on the back end, which features serious but suave tannins and a lingering medicinal quality. Quite supple for young Mount Veeder cabernet and long on personality. Gained in sweetness with extended time in the recorked bottle, without losing any of its mineral energy. As good a cabernet as I've tasted from this winery for years--and their Howell Mountain bottling is in the same class.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder is a big, broad-shouldered wine loaded with class and personality. Firm tannins provide the backdrop for layers of dark red fruit in this super-expressive, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Tar, licorice, menthol, iron and smoke nuances develop in the glass, adding a sense of gravitas. This is a striking, totally beautiful wine from Robert Craig. The 2009 Mount Veeder is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Intense, focused and vibrant, with a beam of mineral-laced dried berry, currant and cedar flavors, this is slow to unfold but does so gracefully. Long and persistent.
