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 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.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder's sweet perfume of framboise, black currants, licorice, and crushed rocks is followed by a broad, concentrated, ripe, impressively-endowed Cabernet boasting sweet tannin as well as a savory, supple palate. It can be drunk now, but promises to evolve for 10-12 years.

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.

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.
