95pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "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 (2016-2046).

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." Dec 2016

Winery: "The 2014 vintage was ideal for Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon in the Napa Valley. Our penultimate vintage on Pym Rae vineyard will prove to be one of our most successful. Many Mount Veeder vineyards, particularly in the southern portion of the AVA, struggle with ripening cabernet due to the ever present marine layer to the west and south. The 2014 vintage saw very little fog, and the fruit ripened along a nearly perfect curve over the growing season. The resulting wine is dark and complex with mountain wild ower accents to complement the black, brooding fruit. The 2014 wines will continue to evolve in the cellar for decades to come, but the balance and class of the vintage will allow them to be enjoyed young as well."
