A lovely Cabernet from California , well done and elegant, pleasant nose of: oak ,tobacco , a touch of cherry , vanilla ,blackberry , cedar , dark fruit , blackcurrant , graphite and black pepper, medium to full body with dry tannins and a good acidity, the finish is pleasant yet dry. Still young and would be better in 2021, my score 88, drink to 2025

375ml bottle, this wine is beginning to show really well right now. Bright and enticing fruit on the nose. Nice even balance of fruit and tannins on the palette. This is a wonderful wine and is very enjoyable with a filet.

Tar, blackberry, gum Arabic, dark rye loaf with caraway, cedar wrapped tobaccos, baked artichoke, baked black currant, mussel shells in beef broth, broken pencils and rosemary sprig. Really a steak bouquet beckoning. Chocolate-y palate with graphite on aged parchment, seared thyme, baked cassis, warm black and blue berries, burnt black currant and black poppyseed. I like this. I knew going in it was going to be round and full, but it contained just enough herbaceous character to keep my brain in the glass. #napacab #mtveeder #cab #cawine #mountainwine #mountveederwinery

Tasted in a lineup of mid-tier Napa cabs and this one stood out--intense berry and brambly fruit, a little musky masculinity, tobacco, wet earth, and ripe chocolatey tannin. Great acidity! Killer value.

Nice cab for the price. Need to let it open up. Blackberry, cedar and tobacco flavors.

2012 vintage. New favorite wine I've had in 2015, this cabernet sauvignon lends itself more as a blend than as a straight cab, as the nose on it expresses bramble fruit with sweet earth and a hint of oak. For such a young wine the tannins on this are pleasing and soft, leading me to wonder just how in the hell it's been three years since 2012 already. The finish is lingering without over staying it's welcome. This makes me more interested in Mount Veeder wines and vintages.
