Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2009 Merlot is intense, juicy and beautifully balanced. A burst of dark, juicy fruit is followed by mint, pine, spices and licorice as the flavors build to the finish. Clean layers of minerality and sweet notes from the new French oak frame the exceptionally polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”,,, (Dec 2011)

High atop Mt. Veeder, breathtaking views evoke a quiet rapture, an appreciation requiring no further explanation or comment. Mt. Veeder speaks for itself. The respect for the land held by the Wappo, ”The Brave Ones,” who first called the mountain home, still resonates. Among these rugged canyons and isolated valleys are iconic vineyards producing wines of such instantly recognizable character that they could only come from one very special place. Wine has been crafted from Mt. Veeder soils since the early 1860s. Along with other Napa winemaking pioneers such as Charles Krug and Agoston Haraszthy, Captain Stalham Wing, who arrived on Mt. Veeder in 1853, showed the first Mt. Veeder wine at the Napa County Fair in 1864. For 150 years, determined winegrowers were moving forward where many thought the conditions too severe, too extreme, and too lacking in promise. The land that is now home to Mt. Brave was originally purchased in 1841, before the Gold Rush forever changed California and two decades before the Civil War.
