96 POINTS: VINOUS - The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is savory, fresh and super-inviting, as so many wines are in this vintage. Bright red cherry, iron, smoke, mint, wild flowers and anise all lift from the glass. Medium in body, taut and wonderfully focused, the 2014 is going to reward readers lucky enough to own it for many, many years. I especially like the pure energy and vibrancy that runs through the 2014. -Antonio Galloni
95 POINTS: WINE SPECTATOR: This packs in a lot of juicy black currant and blackberry paste notes, with lively licorice snap and bramble accents filling the available space. A roasted apple wood accent lends a mouthwatering edge while a tarry echo at the very end adds range and length. Should cruise in the cellar.
One of the benchmark Cabernets in California, Mayacamas Mount Veeder has come to be one of the most sought-after, age-worthy, serious red wines in the world.
