Mount Veeder Cab is always above average, and with the price offered this year it was a real bargain. This is a consistently good Cab.
Big & Bold
This wine has all the earmarks of a classic Napa cab, a rich deep ruby color, with an opacity that hints at its complexity. The nose is a combination of leather, tobacco and spice that let's you know this wine is not playing games. The taste is absolutely beautiful, with a fruit forward appeal of cherries and ripe blackberries, giving way quickly to the young tannins that give this wine big bold Cabernet taste leading to a long smooth finish. What a great wine, perhaps not to the level of the now legendary 2007 vintage, but a fantastic wine in its own right nonetheless.

Excellent Cabernet at an Excellent price! Recommended!
This was overall a good wine, but lacked the nose and finish to be considered Great!
I found this wine a little one-dimensional, although it has nice dark fruit and acidity. I drank Simi's Reserve Cab 06 a few days after, and Simi was much better between the two wines. Listed at a lower price, I might give this wine 3.5 stars.
We are not crazy about this wine.
