Bold purple color. On the nose: black currant, saucy plums, smoky charcoal, black pepper, violets and vanilla. The palate is full and supported by a deck of solid tannins, although some moderate acidity and juicy fruit help balance it all out. Black currant, tangy blackberries, roasted fig paste, the fruit melds with charcoal, vanilla, cedar shavings, cocoa powder, and dark roast coffee grounds. Complex, long, mineral and earth finish – those mountain vineyard qualities really show through in this wine. Delicious but this will really improve over the next four to five years easily, and hold for quite some time. Cabernet with 7% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in all new French oak. This is a reliably excellent wine, vintage in and out, but the 2014 is gorgeous.Isaac James Baker - Reading, Writing & Wine, September 28, 2017
Made from 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot and aged in 100% new oak for 20 months, this is a burly red wine wiht impressive structure and presence. Tangly red fruit, recalling cranberry and currant, is spiced with clove, mountain sage, bay leaf and molasses notes.Virginie Boone - Wine Enthusiast, December 2017
An attractive wine from Mount Veeder Winery, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot and displays attractive blueberry and blackberry fruit, some licorice, spice box and incense. It is medium to full-bodied and pure, with moderate tannin. It should benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well for 12-15 years.Robert Parker - Wine Advocate, December 30, 2016
