Oct. 04, 1999: MOUNT VEEDER Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1996 (91 points, $30)

Wonderful richness, depth and complexity, with layers of earthy currant, mushroom, cedar, clay, tar and leather. It's a big, chewy, rustic style that needs short-term cellaring. Best from 2001 through 2009. 10,000 cases made.
