Ebullient aromas of dark berries, spice, mocha and hints of sweet toasted vanilla oak. On the palate the wine is big and bold, with dark ripe black cherry flavors, a full body, rich texture and robust tannins. Drink from 2016-2041.
We’re very excited about the 2014 vintage. The 2014 vintage represents the third of at least four consecutive years of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. The growing season was fairly consistent and the red wines from 2014 are displaying ripe fruit, great structure and balance.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards were picked separately between September 22 – October 16, to ensure optimal ripeness for each individual site and lot. The lots were crushed and fermented separately, then blended during the 22 months of barrel aging. The flavors and aromas that developed in the fermenters and during barrel aging were fantastic.
