2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Mt. Veeder

93 Points - "A big, explosive wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder hits the palate with serious intensity and pure power. Rich, deep and authoritative in personality, the 2013 speaks with real presence. There is plenty of mountain tannin to ensure many years of fine drinking. This is the darkest and most powerful of the Mt. Brave 2013s."
- Antonio Galloni,, October 2015

Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2013 growing season was another near perfect year. With only a day or two approaching 100 degrees, temperatures were steady and in the sweet spot of 85°-95F°. Dry conditions throughout allowed for ideal maturation and flavor concentration. The 2013 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits typical Mount Veeder cabernet characteristics of blueberry, with floral notes and minerality. Followed by a bit of raspberry and touch of herb, this wine has great texture and very approachable mountain tannins.
