Robert Craig Winery Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$84.95

Robert Craig has consistently ranked among the foremost Napa Valley Cabernet producers since its founding in 1992.  Limited. 95 Points Robert Parker:  "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. ...This winery has been consistently excellent throughout my tastings in Napa going back many, many years. They have also kept a lid on pricing, which remains realistic and consumer-friendly."

Mt Veeder great as usual. Lots of earth and fruit and tobacco and spices. Juicy; great balance. Good now with air, excellent with 5-10 years.

Superb and early-drinking Cab, made in a more Bordeaux style than I recall from previous examples. Pencil lead and sweet fruit on a dry and seamless-smooth core of black and blue fruit, asian spice, loamy earth. Benefitted from 30 min decant. Roka Akor is a chain asian steakhouse, the real deal if you haven’t tried!

Elegant and controlled flavors with dark berries, leather, minerals and a mild acidity that comes at the end of the long finish
