The 2014 “Old Vines” Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly complex showing the sophistication, balance and structure that come from such extraordinary “old vine” vineyards. It expresses the purity and typicity of fully mature cabernet sauvignon that can only be achieved from old vine fruit. The color is dark purple with elevated aromas of cedar, baking spice, graphite and cassis. Flavors of black fruits blend beautifully with the exotic spice of new oak. The texture is silky yet firm with integrated tannins offering a rich, lingering finish. With proper storage this wine should easily age for ten years or more.
Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot
The gem in the lineup is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines, undeniably the most classic and age-worthy in the lineup. Blackcurrants, charcoal, graphite, and chocolate notes, as well as ample minerality, all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, concentrated effort. It needs 2-4 years of bottle age but is a beautiful wine with a long life ahead of it.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines is a deep, rich and beautifully textured effort that gives up tons of chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, roasted herbs and hints of spice. It's a ripe, broad, textured and concentrated effort that has tons to love. It's my favorite in this stacked lineup. The blend here is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, and it’s going to have 2-3 decades of life.
One of the state's best bottles year after year, this delivers herb, blackberry, woodspice and vanilla bean aromas. The palate is tightly wound and impeccably balanced, with a mixture of fruit and barrel flavors that show depth. Made with the future in mind, it will be best from 2025–2032.
A firm and silky red with blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of hazelnuts, too. Full- bodied, reserved and focused. Love the tar undertones. Drink or hold. But better in 2020.
