Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder is a big, broadshouldered wine loaded with class and personality. Firm tannins provide the backdrop for layers of dark red fruit in this superexpressive, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Tar, licorice, menthol, iron and smoke nuances develop in the glass, adding a sense of gravitas. This is a striking, totally beautiful wine from Robert Craig. The 2009 Mount Veeder is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 20142029."" Aroma: Wild mountain fruit, pure and concentrated, is intertwined with cassis, cocoa powder, cedar and delicate black rose. Underlying notes of graphite and crushed rock add a Bordeauxlike minerality. Flavors: An elegant mouthful of Mt. Veeder black currant, sweet cassis and powdered chocolate is followed by pencil lead, lively mineral notes, and warm stones. Finish: Deep layers of black cherry and berry are bolstered by finegrained mountain tannins and enlivened by bracing acidity. General: This beautifully structured wine is built for the longhaul. Decanting recommended."
