About This Wine:
After 22 years sourcing our Veeder Cabernet from the Pym Rae Vineyard, the 2015 will be our final bottling from the late Robin Williams’ 19-acre property. Pym Rae is on the north end of the appellation, free from coastal influence, where the fruit develops incredible structure and purity. For now, we say a fond farewell to an outstanding property and old friend, while looking ahead to 2019, when we will introduce our first Cabernet from our new estate vineyard—newly christened “Amentet Vineyard”—which abuts the Pym Rae property.

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.

95 POINTS - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (March 2018)
"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."

93+ POINTS - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com (12/29/17)
"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."

93 POINTS - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (12/27/17)
"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."
