Hints of wild mountain fruit, rose and cedar with pronounced crushed rock and Bordeaux like minerality. Warm earth notes married with lively mineral notes and fine grain mountain tannins. Dark blue and black fruit, dark spice, minerality and bracing acidity on the finish.

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.
93 Points - James Suckling
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.
