“A slick and condensed showing, with a rich, lavish nose of reduced black fruits and fresh brownies. The palate is loaded with ample purple fruits, while the finish comes around with a typical Mount Veeder sturdiness. For lovers of a confident, forward, opulent style but also seeking a chewy, gritty structure.”
Matthew Luczy, Decanter
“This has aromas and flavors of blackberry leaf, thyme, blackcurrant, licorice and cedar. It’s medium-to-full-bodied with firm, tight tannins. Mineral and iodine character on the finish. Needs some time to soften.”
"A vertical, soaring wine, the 2018 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon speaks with commanding authority. Red-fleshed fruit, blood orange, dried herbs, mint, iron and savory herbs build into a crescendo of aromas, flavors and texture. The Mount Veeder Cabernet is wonderfully vivid and so expressive."
Antonio Galloni, Vinous
