Mt Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

95 pts Robert Parker
“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3.5% Merlot, 1.5% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep purple-black, it sings of warm blackberries, cassis and wild blueberries with hints of violets, dark chocolate, cigar box and menthol. Full-bodied and laden with black and blue fruit, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long. 6,441 cases produced.”

“This shows a vivid boysenberry and blackberry fruit profile, laced with licorice, roasted apple wood and violet notes, all backed by a solidly grippy structure and a late zing of minerality. Best from 2021 through 2038. 6,441 cases made.”

“With 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Malbec, this mountain wine is supple and silky on the palate, its tannins relatively tamed. A touch of reduction on the nose dives into tar, leather and oak, with a tease of black pepper and meaty red fruit, the wine weighty yet ultimately graceful.”
