As with the 2015, the base 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a tremendous value. Blueberries, black cherries, licorice and hints of charcoal all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, opulent red that lacks the sheer grandeur and finesse of the top cuvee, yet packs gorgeous fruit and offers a peek at the quality coming from this estate. The blend is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc aged in 50% new French oak.

Dark and rich, with explosive dark berry, mocha, licorice, cedar and crushed rock touches, tilting toward herbal underbrush notes on the finish but never losing focus on the fruit. Drink now through 2032. 33,410 cases made. –JL
This wine exhibits a perfume of intertwining notes of dried fig, black current, black pepper, wet gravel, and dried thyme. Mouth-coating flavors of blackberry preserves, tobacco; cocoa nib and nutmeg develop on the palate along with a full spectrum of tannin in layers of powerful, chewy, and round texture that integrate into a long, polished finish.
