"In the glass, the 2014 Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, deep purple. The nose is vibrant with violets, huckleberry and a touch of vanilla spice. The palate is elegantly wound with dusty tannins and a supple, velvet texture. The long, seamless finish, ebbs and flows with flavors of black currant, dark cocoa and forest floor.
The vineyards are located along the southern extremity of Alexander Valley, along the Western bench of the Mayacamas. These soils are rocky and volcanic, with excellent early and mid---day sun exposure. The water stressed vines thrive only because the Mayacamas peaks protect them from the harsh \afternoon sun.
