Drinkable now despite lush, firm tannins, this Cab lets its fruit star. The black currant, black cherry pie, mocha and vanilla spice flavors are delicious and compelling, and the finish is dry, elegant and upscale.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Robert Craig has been ranked among California's top producers of Cabernet Sauvignon by many journalists and critics. This bottling exemplifies the best fo the 'mountain' fruit grown on Mount Veeder at the highest elevations in Napa Valley, providing both intensity and structure. Superb nose of black fruits with mineral notes and a ripe, concentrated, full palate backed by ingerated ripe tannins.
Deliciously rich and complex, with concentrated currant, black cherry, anise, berry and spice flavors, finishing with pleasant, well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2007.
Black and burly, with notes of dill and horsehide. That it's opaque makes sense, given its heavy black-currant and coffee notes. Quite mammoth in proportions, maybe even bordering on syrupy.
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.
Aims for elegance and finesse (at the expense of sheer power), with spicy red currant and black cherry fruit that's smooth and polished, with mild, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2008.
The powerful, dense, backward, highly-extracted, formidable 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder boasts a black/purple color. Although impressively endowed and muscular with admirable symmetry, this wine requires 3-5 years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.
