The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mount Veeder (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec) was one of the top wines presented to me. This wine needs another 4–5 years of cellaring and could keep 30 years. A beautiful nose of white flowers, graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, along with the telltale cassis and tobacco leaf are all present in this wine, which offers great intensity and full-bodied power in a well-delineated and moderately structured style. Give the wine some time and watch it unfold. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2025+. For the quality, it is a reasonably priced wine, and there are 7,480 cases.

With 20% Malbec, this wine is layered in refined complexity, swaying from juicy blueberry to herbaceous cherry and currant. Restrained in oak, with the slightest notion of vanilla on the palate, it finishes in mouthwatering dark chocolate — the tannins firm and structured.

Shows a measure of restraint and a taut minerality, allowing the ripe, expressive fruit to glow amid a pleasant mix of cedar, loamy earth and cigar box. Ends with chewy tannins that turn gritty. Drink now through 2030. 7,480 cases made.
