Traditionally, Robert Craig has done a brilliant job with their selection from Mount Veeder, and the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) shows that haunting blueberry, raspberry, black raspberry and floral notes that seem characteristic of that AVA. A dense ruby/purple color, beautifully sweet purity, full-bodied opulence with a layered mouthfeel as well as sweet tannin make for another great 2013 that can be drunk young or cellared for 20-25 years. - Robert Parker

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder) opens with a blast of dark blue/purplish fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. A host of graphite, slate, game, iron and savory notes appears later, adding considerable nuance... The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder) opens with a blast of dark blue/purplish fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. A host of graphite, slate, game, iron and savory notes appears later, adding considerable nuance throughout. The 2013 packs plenty of intensity, but the style is distinctly fruit-driven for the year.

The spices and fresh herbs come through the cool fruit here. Hints of sweet tobacco. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. A delicious red with lots of character and tone. Attractive now but better in 2020.

Dark purple, almost black at the core straight to the rim. Aromas of dark purple/blue fruit mix with notes of cigar box, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and just a touch of oak.

Aromas of dark purple/blue fruit mix with notes of cigar box, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and just a touch of oak. Still tightly coiled, the wine nonetheless impresses for its elegance, with silky tannins offering structure to the dark fruit straight through a long and lingering finish. Already drinking well, this will certainly improve with a few years in the bottle, and should drink well for another 10-15 years.
