"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, was aged 23 months in French oak. It has an opaque purple/black color and rich crème de cassis and blackberry fruit as well as some charcoal and graphite. Full-bodied, impressive, and a truly compelling example of Cabernet Sauvignon, this should hit its stride in another 4-5 years and last for three decades or more. It is extra special, but be forewarned – the bottle might be the heaviest bottle I’ve ever picked up during a tasting, so if you have shoulder issues, caveat emptor."
"This refined Cabernet Sauvignon combines bold, mountainside structure with ethereal finesse, purity, and sophistication. Intense aromas of dark cherry liqueur, blackcurrant, wild boysenberry, and ripe apricots are intricately laced with notes of anise, crème de cassis, graphite, espresso crème brûlée, and a touch of cocoa powder. The incredibly dense palate offers an elegant, velvety mouth feel, which culminates beautifully with pitch-perfect acidity, balance, and luxurious opulence. The complex array of these exotic nuances continue to evolve within the textural expansiveness, resulting in a long lasting climax, and a full expression of modern style Cabernet which is sure to intrigue the senses." - Winery
