Great price on this Mt. Veeder Cabernet!

sorry, sold out already

2013 Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon..$59.99
Suggested retail is $75
Average price on Wine-Searcher is $75
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher in MO is $74.99
There are 2 places lower in the country on Wine-Searcher, but one only has 4 bottles and the other does not seem to have it.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Franc, aged in 80% new French oak. Floral notes intermixed with blueberry and black raspberry fruit as well as blackcurrants jump from the glass of this wine, which has full body and terrific texture, purity and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate
The mountain appellation speaks loudly in this wine, contributing juicy blackberry, tar and leather, all within a forested context of wild truffle and crunchy leaves. Concentrated and robust in body and ripeness, it unwinds slowly in the glass, imparting jolts of black pepper as it goes.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Enthusiast
A big, explosive wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder hits the palate with serious intensity and pure power. Rich, deep and authoritative in personality, the 2013 speaks with real presence. There is plenty of mountain tannin to ensure many years of fine drinking. This is the darkest and most powerful of the Mt. Brave 2013s.
Rated 93/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
