Robert Craig Cellars Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Far across the valley, the Pym Rae vineyard sits at the summit of Mount Veeder, rising to 1800 feet and separating Sonoma County from Napa Valley. Aromas of graphite and slate, cedar and black licorice, exotic black berry, currant and rose oil. Big, full and rich on the palate, with black currant, tar and earth finishing with chewy and lingering tannins.
Robert Craig Winery showcases four Cabernet Sauvignons produced from Napa Valley mountain and hillside vineyards, including Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate vineyard, Affinity, a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet, and powerhouse Cabernets from Mount Veeder and Spring Mountain. Each wine conveys a unique personality derived from the soils, climate and varietal characteristics of the growing region. Robert Craig has been a pioneer in mountain vineyard development for over 30 years. During the 1980s, he directed vineyard and winery development on Mount Veeder. Robert Craig wines debuted in 1992. The winery facility is located at 2300 feet atop Howell Mountain, with a Tasting Salon in Downtown Napa.
