2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage   |  2014 2013 2012

The aroma pops with bright black cherry and blackberry, followed by cinnamon and spice with a touch of black pepper. On the palate the wine is round and full-bodied; full of blackberry flavor with a touch of red fruit intertwined with dusty tannins on the finish.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The grapes used to produce this wine come from vineyards of distinction across Napa Valley. A list of our renowned growers include: Sequoia Grove Estate, Tonella Estate and Morisoli vineyards in Rutherford, Stagecoach vineyard in Atlas Peak, Lamoreaux vineyard in Oak Knoll District, Henry Brothers vineyard in Howell Mountain, Frediani vineyard in Calistoga, Johnson vineyard in Yountville, Healy vineyard in St. Helena and Christian vineyard in Coombsville. Each site was harvested at its ideal brix, ranging between 24.9 and 29.4, and picked over the course of four weeks, from September 16th through October 14th. The fruit was hand sorted before undergoing a 1-2 day cold soak. The lots were individually fermented in small batches, with gentle pumpovers 2-3 times per day. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel, where it was aged for 20 months before being racked and bottled in August 2015.
