Chris Carpenter with few other winemakers in Napa is consistent Shining Star! Chris is a very talented person; first when you meet him you are impressed by how tall he is and by his very deep voice! After few minutes you feel respect for this down to earth, sweet, and charming person.
Mount Brave is the baby Lokoya. Chris achieved a major task by bringing such a wine to the pinacle of the 2011 Cabernets! It is a gracious wine with a long finish that is will not stop to impress you!
Vinous Notes, Antonio Galloni, 94Pts: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Blueberry, blackberry, cloves, menthol, spices and licorice are all woven together in a Cabernet Sauvignon that is relatively soft and supple for a mountain wine. Sweet perfumed notes flesh out on a highly expressive finish laced with violets, jasmine and lavender…This is an absolutely beautiful bottle of wine"
Wine Advocate, Robert Parker 93Pts: "Absolutely stunning, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is a beauty. Notes of charcoal, blueberry liqueur, black currants, licorice, incense and violets jump from the glass of this 93.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc blend that was aged in 91% new French oak. This full-bodied 2011 is a tremendous success for the vintage, again reflecting that mountain sites often did very well, and taste like a completely different vintage than the valley floor 2011s. This savory, fleshy wine has low acidity and ripe tannin, so it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more"
