2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Estate Reserve


Red Blend

Vineyard and Winemaking

2014 was a banner year for Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, allowing us to produce a 100%  Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which is only produced in the absolute best years. A near perfect growing season from beginning to end gave us the opportunity to hand harvest on October 20. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were destemmed directly to open top tanks upon arrival at the winery, where a long fermentation ensued. The grapes were gently punched down by hand twice daily, allowing for gentle extraction of flavors and aromas. After the fermentation concluded, the wine was pressed directly into 65% new French oak barrels and aged 36 months. 207 cases bottled

Tasting Notes

Opens with perfumy, rich aromas of cassis, black currant, violet, and candied anise with hints of vanilla cream soda, blueberry, cocoa powder, and oak spice. The palate follows with broodingly dark chocolate, cassis, maple syrup, pipe tobacco and oak spice. With great depth and balance, our Estate Cabernet is drinking great now and will age beautifully for
10 to 20 years.
