2015 Mt Brave Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder

$94.95
WA96

Mt. Brave is a dream project for Chris Carpenter, who knows how to coax the best wines from Mt. Veeder, Napa’s coolest mountain district known for well-drained soils and low yields. This gorgeous wine, just 25% of the price of its Lokoya neighbor, “gives up notions of crème de cassis, violets, baker's chocolate, licorice and yeast extract with a touch of beef drippings. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully expressive, the palate gives lovely ripe tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy.” – The Wine Advocate
