This dark, reddish black Cabernet has aromas of fresh red fruit, blackberry, candied orange, toasted nuts, and a bacon fat smoky note.
The palate is juicy, full of intense mountain vineyard character and with notes of blackberry. Cellar 10 years.
Harvest 2014 started with the scare of drought. Luckily, some perfectly timed spring rain helped develop nice vineyard canopies to protect the fruit from heat. Likely due to the dry winter we had an early bloom and an even earlier ripening than 2013. Not only that, we had one of the largest earthquakes in decades rock the valley on the eve of harvest. Undeterred, but with many vintners picking up the pieces of broken barrels and spilled wine, harvest 2014 charged on with perfect mild weather through the end of the growing season. This led to high quality grapes and even higher quality wine that we are excited to share
