About

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. I would give the 2015 at least a few years to settle down, as the tannins are imposing at this early stage.

Product Description:

This wine offers a heady perfume of deep black plum, currant, cocoa and cassis, enlivened by Bordeaux-style notes of graphite, tobacco and cedar. Mt. Veeder black fruit, sweet cassis, currant and cocoa powder flow across the palate, underlain with pencil lead, lively mineral notes and a hint of burning embers. A huge, persistent core of deep black cherry and berry powers through the finish, bolstered by fine-grained mountain tannins and enlivened by bracing acidity. This is among the most age-worthy of Robert Craig's mountain Cabernets. - Winery
