Wine Advocate Review
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder comes from a vineyard once owned by the late Robin Williams called Pym Rae (now owned by the Tesseron family from Bordeaux) that sits at an elevation of 1,800 feet. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are all present in this full-bodied wine that displays the high-elevation bluer fruits that Mt. Veeder can provide. There is a floweriness and full-bodied richness, big extract, but great balance and no rusticity. This beauty should drink well for at least 25-30 years.
The vintage saw very little fog, and the fruit ripened along a nearly perfect curve over the growing season. The resulting wine is dark and complex with mountain wildflower accents to complement the black, brooding fruit. The 2014 wines will continue to evolve in the cellar for decades to come, but the balance and class of the vintage will allow them to be enjoyed young as well.
