    Mt. Veeder is one of my favorite regions for Cabernet. The wines grown here are very distinctive. They have power and structure but also tend to retain beautiful varietal characters of cedar, tobacco and leather. Combined with the minerality expressed from the rugged volcanic and ancient sea bed soils, these wines are truly unique and fascinating. Mt Brave captures exactly what I described above with the extra bit of flare and exoticism Chris Carpenter puts into his wines. The 2017 might be best release of this wine in recent memory, perhaps owing to the declassification of Lokoya wines that were not produced in 2017. I love that this wine has the upfront fruit and lush texture to be enjoyed young, but at the same time there is obvious potential for ageing here with mountain tannins woven into the fabric of rich, dark fruit. Those compelling cigar box and cedar notes are here too adding another layer on complexity beyond the luxurious fruit. This wine is very well done, nothing is out of place, the balance impeccable. In this day and age when you across a wine of this pedigree, with triple 95 point scores from the top publications, the price tag is typically MUCH higher. This is a great buy for those folks who like to drink super high-end, cult Napa Cabs, but don't want to spend $200-$500 per bottle doing it.
