2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Case Only)
2014 was a rich and ripe vintage, leading to intense flavor and color, and yet I am proud of having made a wine that is perfectly balanced and restrained. One of my favorite winemakers, Dominique Belluard, talks about the importance of a wine having energy. This wine has energy! – Richard
Tasting Notes: Aromas of vibrant red fruit -- sour cherry, black cherry – with texture and energy on the palate. The wine is dense, juicy but fresh, with great intensity. A perfect complement to hearty meat dishes. It is a sophisticated wine from an unsophisticated person.
Grape Varieties: Almost 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Wood Treatment: The wine is aged entirely in French barrels of varying size and thickness. 20 percent of the barrels are new. The goal of the barrel program is to allow the fruit to express itself fully without having the wood distort the flavor the wine.
