Wine Advocate Review
Rated 96
Composed of 87.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 1.5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder gives up notions of creme de cassis, violets, baker's chocolate, licorice and yeast extract with a touch of beef drippings. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully expressive, the palate gives lovely ripe tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy. Drink 2018-2037.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is another Mt. Brave wine that is going to need cellaring. The 2015 plays a big game, with huge fruit and equally imposing tannins. Deep, inky and ample, the 2015 is very hard to read today. That won't be an issue in a few years, but today, the Cabernet is a forbidding, young Mt. Veeder wine endowed with serious intensity in all of its dimensions. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 94
This is filled with lush cassis, boysenberry and blackberry compote flavors, supported by dense, lush tannins. The finish is polished, with anise and roasted apple wood notes seamlessly integrated throughout, with a tarry echo at the very end keeping this grounded. A modern expression of mountain fruit. Best from 2020 through 2038.

Wine Tasting Notes
The Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon is meant to show all that is Mt. Veeder without overt tannins and the vintage is a great example of that proposition. This is the first vintage we used a little bit of Petit Verdot in blending. This Cabernet Sauvignon has great spice, minerality, notes of blue fruits, toast, and dark cherry that combine with bright floral notes, weight and a wonderful finish.
