Mt. Brave makes it second appearance on our top wine list in just a few short years, and for those of you who've enjoyed these wines, you understand why. This wine is made by Chris Carpenter, who is the absolute master at taming the sometimes massive tannins that come from mountain-grown Cabernets. Chris has several 100 point scores to his credit, and makes Lokoya, Cardinale, La Jota, and others. In fact, the grapes used for Mt. Brave come from the same vineyard used to make the 100 points wines for Lokoya's Mount Veeder Cabernet!

ANTONIO GALLONI 97 POINTS - "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Brave is fabulous. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2018 possesses tremendous depth and tons of personality. Graphite, blue/purplish fruit, blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, sage, lavender, menthol give the 2018 tons of character to match its explosive feel. The brooding, backward wine is going to need quite a bit of time to unwind, but boy is it gorgeous."

JEB DUNNUCK 97 POINTS - "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 95+ POINTS - "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 creme de cassis, baked plums and Morello cherries scents, followed by nuances of sauteed 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. 6,753 cases were made."
