Robert Craig Mt Veeder 2014
This release 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.
Wine AdvocateThe 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. There is no rusticity. This beauty should drink well for at least 25-30 years.
