RATINGS

95+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

...a big, sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, some graphite, a juicy, full-bodied, savory mouthfeel, and excellent purity and underlying balance. This seamlessly rich mountain Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly...

95Jeb Dunnuck

The star of the show ... everything you could want from a Mountain Cabernet. Cassis, blueberries, violets, leafy herbs & graphite... concentrated, yet plush, forward, incredibly sexy... no hard edges, impeccable balance & a great finish...

PRODUCER

Mt. Brave

Mt. Brave was founded in 2007 on the upper reaches of Mt. Veeder. It is named for the native Wappo tribe, whose name translates as “the brave ones.” Mt. Brave is part of the Jackson Family Wines Collection, which, despite its roots in Napa Valley, now owns wineries around the world. The Mt. Brave vineyard ranges from 1,400 to 1,800 feet above sea level, meaning that part of it is above the famous fog line that moves into lower elevation vineyards. Chris Carpenter is the winemaker. He has worked for Lokoya, La Jota and Cardinale. The estate makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Mount Veeder

Mount Veeder AVA was established in 1993, though its origins as a wine producing district date to the 19th century. A German Presbyterian pastor named Peter Veeder was one of the first landowners in the area, and by 1864 one of his neighbors, a German sea captain named Stelham Wing, was producing wine commercially. The area continued to attract German agricultural entrepreneurs, some of whom established the estate that would later become the Christian Brothers Mont La Salle winery. Today the AVA includes about 1,000 acres of vineyards, most of them at relatively high altitudes. The Mayacamas vineyard, for instance, is at 2,400 feet. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape, followed by Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
