K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "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. 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."

    What a truly phenomenal value for top notch Mount Veeder Cabernet! The fruit for this wine comes from the Pym Rae vineyard which is one of the highest in the AVA at over 1800 feet in elevation. This is Robert Craig's last vintage from this property, so I wouldn't hesitate to grab a bottle. The nose just screams Mount Veeder with blackberry, cherry, pencil shaving and eucalyptus character. It has a big, robust palate with firm structure that will begin to show fantastically in a few years.

    This stunning release from Robert Craig reinforced to me once again that Mt. Veeder is my favorite sub-region in Napa for Cabernet Sauvignon. Cool breezes from the pacific ocean and poor, rocky mountain soils bring forth a classic, balanced, structured expression of the grape. The aromatics boast briary, dark red fruit, pipe tobacco, shaved cedar and dry spices. The palate is powerful, but quite linear and focused. Nothing jammy or sweet about this flavor profile; instead it's much more restrained and savory then many modern expression of Napa Cab. Redcurrant, plum, mulberry and dried fig. The tannins are long and polished and acidity beautifully integrated with the fruit. All the components are beautifully tuned and working in unison; an effortlessly powerful wine with regal pedigree. Don't miss this last of an era Pym Rae vineyard Robert Craig release, it's quite a swan song.
