Good. Decanting would probably make it lean towards very very good. Oaky, but not enough to make it an O Bomb. Sweet leather nose, solid tannic elements keep it grounded. Pull out the seared tbone and stewed tomato garlic swiss chard.

Production was 10,000 cases, amazing when you consider how good this mountain wine is. Immediately drinkable for the soft purity of the tannins and complex cassis, chocolate and oak flavors, it has the sturdy structure to develop for some years, but is best now for its elegant purity. Hess is on a real Cabernet roll, and is one of Naparsquo;s overlooked stars.

Supple and graceful, especially for Mount Veeder, offering a mix of dried herb, ripe currant and cherry, with light cedary, creamy oak. Ends with a layered, complex aftertaste. Best from 2009 through 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Small amounts of Malbec and Merlot bring some additional complexity to this Cabernet, but itandrsquo;s still a pretty straightforward wine. Soft and dry, it has generous flavors of blackberry and new oak. Drink now.

Sturdy, intense, extracted and complex, with dense earthy currant, sage, cedar and mint flavors. Mount Veeder reds can be rugged, and even with an added year in bottle this is open-throttle. Very nicely done in a classic Mount Veeder style. Begs for more time. Best from 2014 through 2028.
