1999 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500523
Aromas are rich aromas of dark, black fruit and roasted coffee, followed by notes of dusty cedar, anise and hints of herbs. On the palate flavors are forward, concentrated flavors of ripe black cherry, currant, plum and spice, with a touch of cedar and mocha. The finish is solid, thick core of black fruit lengthens and combines with toasty, sweet oak and silky chocolate for a full and delicious finish. Overall the wine is seamless integration of flavors from start to finish. A focused, refined offering in which the dark, deep fruit and supple tannins form a complex, finely textured wine with excellent potential for long-term aging.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 90
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The outstanding, dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder offers up sweet scents of black fruits, smoke, minerals, licorice, and well-integrated oak. It is medium to full-bodied and powerful, with moderate tannin, and a deeper, more muscular personality than the supple Affinity. It can be drunk now and over the next 12-13 years.
This year’s offering of Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is a definitive presentation of the 1999 vintage – a finely crafted wine with dense, generous fruit and complex layers of flavors, integrated with exceptionally fine, ripe tannins. Ideal growing conditions and a long, leisurely harvest allowed for extracting the best qualities from each wine lot, resulting in a classic Mt. Veeder Cabernet of great power and finesse.
