Rich deep dark berry color with creamy mocha-espresso flavors is the first impression of this wine. The tannins are well integrated with the fruit and create a long finish that keeps going. It's full bodied with a saturated finish while accompanied by bright acidity and infused by black current and cooked blueberry fruit. Balanced and intense, it showcases what Bordeaux varieties can perform when managed correctly.
The straight 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is an inky colored, ripe and voluptuous effort that has no hard edges, tons of fruit, and impressive notes of plums, licorice and smoked herbs. This cuvee comes from a number of sites throughout the appellation.
