Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a mountain Cabernet that showcases the best of the Mt. Veeder appellation in Napa Valley, California. The rocky slopes of the mountain provide the ideal terroir for growing high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that produce an exquisite wine.

In the glass, this wine has a deep, dark color with hues of purple and blue. Aromas of blue and red fruits dance on the nose, accompanied by a touch of baking spice. On the palate, the wine offers a dense and lush weight, with firm yet refined tannins that provide a complex and satisfying structure.

The 2019 growing season was marked by ideal fruit set conditions, resulting in higher volumes and great phenolic accumulation without high sugar concentration. The summer heat accumulation was steady, with only a couple of short spikes, and the near-perfect fall season allowed for perfect ripening of the grapes.

Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is compelling now, with its complex and rich flavors, but it also has great potential for cellaring. This wine is perfect for special occasions and pairing with red meats, game, and strong cheeses.

Crafted with precision and care, this mountain Cabernet showcases the best of what Napa Valley has to offer. This bottle will make a wonderful addition to any wine collection and a gift that any wine enthusiast will treasure.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 97:
Lots of cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as classic Mount Veeder notes of lavender, violets, bouquet garni, and rocky, mineral-like notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep, full-bodied mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a plush, layered texture, beautiful tannins, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a great finish. Another head-turning wine from this label, it’s a candidate for the best Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon out there at the price point.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 95:

A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 1.5% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder was aged for 22 months in oak barrels, 82% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it springs from the glass with vibrant crème de cassis, baked plums and Morello cherries scents, followed by nuances of sautéed herbs, clove oil, mocha and scorched earth. The full-bodied palate is densely laden with layers of black and blue fruits, sporting a rock-solid backbone of grainy tannins and great tension, finishing long and minerally. Rating: 95+

James Suckling Review - Rated 95:

Blackberry and chili with hints of cloves and graphite. Bitter chocolate, too. Full-bodied, very linear and tight with intense tannins that lead you down the finish. Solid structure. Needs four or five years to open up.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 95:
This packs in lots of dense yet sleek blackberry, mulberry and black currant fruit flavors, while anise, sassafras and violet notes add range throughout. There's plenty of structure embedded as well, though it tilts to the zesty, acid-driven side of the ledger, further enlivening the fruit. This has a serious oak treatment, but it's very precise and fine-grained. For the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2038.
