“The 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet is dark in color, almost a deep black purple. On the nose it is loaded with black currant and cassis. The palate is rich, full bodied and has a touch more tannin than the 2012 and 2013. Black currant, plums and cassis fruit are intertwined with a touch a vanilla from the 25% new French oak we used. A touch of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, about 4% of each added to the complexity. It has a long and lingering finish that lasts about a minute. ” – From the winery. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Napa Valley. Aged 12 months in 100% French oak, 40% new.
