93 Points Mt. Brave 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon - "With raspingly dry, hard tannins, this is a difficult Cabernet to assess. It's impressively rich in blackberries and black currants, with a firm minerality, and the overall balance is good. Seems like it should develop over the next decade, maybe even longer, but those tannins might outlast the fruit." Cellar Selection—Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, July 2012
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Nestled on the western ridge of the Mayacamas Mountains, the Mt. Brave Vineyard succeeds in its struggle to produce fruit of great distinction, as found in this Cabernet Sauvignon, brimming with the violets, minerality, and blueberry aromas one expects from Mt. Veeder. Expressive blue fruit flavors are joined by wet shale and mountain tannins massaged to a mouth-filling crescendo.
