This wine shows the classic tannic backbone of a mountain-fruit based Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which requires patience and some extended time in the cellars. The mid-palate is filled by the blending components, with juicy blue/black fruits properly supported by the fine grained tannins. Plenty of acidity in this wine lingers on the finish

Growing Conditions

Perched on an exposed shoulder up on Spring Mountain, this site gets plenty of sun, as it sits above the fog, basking in the warmth of the valley. 2014 was the third stellar growing season in a row for the Napa Valley. It started out about 2 weeks ahead of normal. With warm, sunny weather and almost no rain through the summer, the vines got through the flowering and fruit set stages loaded with healthy and abundant clusters heading into veraison. The fruit for the 2014 Bougetz Cellars Amaryllis Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Baconbrook Vineyard in the Spring Mountain District AVA.
