Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

Deep ruby-red. Dark, mineral-driven aromas of black plum, cassis, menthol and licorice. Then creamy-sweet and open-knit for a young cabernet from Spring Mountain, with intense dark berry flavors complicated by a saline nuance on the back end. The finish is tactile, firmly tannic and long. This wine went into a shell in the glass, suggesting that it will need some bottle aging.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Dry and restrained, with crushed rock and mineral notes accompanied by a trim band of currant and berry. More interesting and engaging on the finish, which is a good sign. 485 cases made.

About This Producer


Robert Craig's ultra-premium winery is renowned for limited-production, hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignons from the mountains and foothills of Napa Valley. A pioneer in the development of mountain sources, Robert was involved with The Hess Collection in the 1980s before embarking on his own winemaking project in 1990. The program includes Affinity, a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and powerhouse Cabernets from Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain appellations. These award-winning, structured and stylish Cabernets convey a unique personality derived from the soils, climate and varietal characteristics of each growing region. Robert Craig has been a pioneer in Napa Valley mountain vineyards since the 1980s.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
