Notes from the Winemaker:
After more than two decades working with the Pym Rae Vineyard, this will be our second to last vintage sourced from the late Robin William’s 19-acre property. Found on the north end of the appellation, this area is free of coastal influence, developing marvelous structure without sacrificing purity of fruit. This is the second vintage farmed by Pete Richmond of Silverado Farming Company. His grasp of the vineyard has been profound, and new farming methods have improved the uniformity of vine nutrition, causing very low pH, high acid and gorgeous tannin structure.
Our 2015 Mount Veeder offering is a towering wine of tremendous tannin structure coupled with dense color. Classic Mount Veeder markers are present in force; dried cocoa, pencil shaving, cassis, and mountain violet are woven into this tightly wound wine. This Mount Veeder release is without doubt one of the most profound Cabernets that we have produced at Robert Craig Winery in terms of its size and power. If enjoying this wine young, a two-hour decant is recommended. The 2015 Mount Veeder will cellar comfortably for decades yet should start to show well as soon as 2020.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"One of the highlights in this range, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder) is seriously beautiful. A healthy dollop (24%) of Merlot gives the wine terrific mid-palate pliancy and fruit depth to play off of the more intensely mineral and soil-drive signatures, of which there are many. Raspberry jam, crushed rocks, blood orange, white pepper and red cherry jam infuse this deep, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from Robert Craig." (Mar 2018)

93+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"From one of my favorite terroirs in the valley, the saturated purple-colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot) is a violet-tinged, blueberry, sage brush, charcoal, and menthol scented 2015 that offers full-bodied richness, a notable minerality, good mid-palate density and a beautiful finish. Closed, backward, yet impressively concentrated on the palate, it's a beautiful wine that needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, and it should keep for two decades." (Dec 2017)

93 Points - James Suckling:
Aromas of blackberry and blueberry with crushed stone. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a fruity finish. A blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon and 24% merlot. Drink in 2020." (Dec 2017)
