  The star of the show is clearly the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon and it has everything you could want from a Mountain Cabernet. Cassis, blueberries, violets, leafy herbs, and graphite notes all emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, yet plush, forward, incredibly sexy 2014. With no hard edges, impeccable balance, and a great finish, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 15+ years.   (12/2017)

  The top score, though, has to go to the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is 90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest small quantities of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. This wine has an opaque purple color, a big, sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, some graphite, a juicy, full-bodied, savory mouthfeel, and excellent purity and underlying balance. This seamlessly rich mountain Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for two decades or more. 95+ (RP)   (10/2016)

  Small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec are blended into this impressive wine, which is reduced slightly on the nose. The flavors of cassis and red cherry turn juicy and tart on the midpalate before exposing complex lengths of tobacco and clove. This wine will be best enjoyed in time, so shoot for 2020 through 2024. *Cellar Selection* (VB)   (5/2018)

  The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is the most reticent of these wines from Mt. Brave. Powerful, explosive and tightly wound, the Cabernet offers notable intensity and plenty of depth. Readers should expect to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years. This is one of the better relative values among the high-end wines in the Jackson portfolio. Hints of lavender, espresso, and bittersweet chocolate round out the nuanced finish. 92+ (ST)   (12/2016)

94 points Wilfred Wong of Wine.com  Showing outstanding freshness and zip, the red-fruited 2014 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits pinpoint fruit quality. Fresh on the palate, this is one of the best-structured wines in the marketplace from the Mount Veeder AVA. Pair it with a double-thick grilled pork chop. (Tasted: October 30, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
The Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon is meant to show all that is Mt. Veeder without overt tannins and the 2014 is a great example of that proposition. Black and red berry characters with hints of herb, Asian spice, espresso, and toast combine with floral notes, weight and a wonderful finish.

Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with roast lamb, a good old burger, succulent ribeye, cooked medium to rare, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
