2014 CABERNET SAUVIGNON  |  NAPA VALLEY  |  OAKVILLE

Another year of drought, 2014 follows in a string of superb Napa Valley vintages. We experienced near perfect summer temperatures resulting in wines with muscle yet elegantly proportioned tannins. In contrast to the highly acclaimed 2013 vintage, aromas and flavors are darker with hints of plum skin, dark chocolate, bay leaf, and tobacco. The addition of Cabernet Franc from this majestic Oakville site perfects the energetic tannins and offers whiffs of rose petal and even lavender. Robert Parker describes this bottling as “beautiful fruit purity, integrated acidity, tannin and an elegant long finish. This is another example of Napa Cabernet at its quintessentially most elegant.”
