The Napa Valley wines are a blend of Howell Mountain fruit and a small quantity of valley floor fruit that is purchased. This valley floor fruit contributes to the wine’s earlier approachability and softer tannic structure. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 32 months in 100% new French oak.
Third Party Reviews
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a wonderfully compelling, bright, vibrant nose of kirsch, black raspberries and fresh blackcurrants with touches of lavender, bay leaves, pencil shavings, wood smoke and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and packed with vivacious red and black fruit layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long with an enticing herbal lift.
