JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS - "Black raspberries, cassis, spring flowers, and tobacco notes dominate the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, a beautiful, classic, medium to full-bodied, incredibly satisfying Cabernet that does everything right. Drink this complex, perfumed, elegant beauty over the coming two decades. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec, aged in 81% new French oak."
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Another brand that is part of the Jackson Family Wines, the Mt Brave Vineyard was the original source for William Hill's Reserve wines. In effect, the label parallel's La Jota, just originating from a different mountain. This Mount Veeder vineyard gets sun early, but it cools down in the early afternoon. According to winemaker Chris Carpenter, this site provides more backbone tannins, compared to the breadth provided by Howell Mountain (La Jota)."
"The only one of the Mt Brave wines that isn't 100% varietal, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder includes 4% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Offering hints of sage and lavender entwined among waves of cassis, this full-bodied wine may not be as broad or expansive in the mouth as the La Jota, but it also might be a touch juicier and longer on the finish."
