Our 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark burgundy color and has deep layers of aromas and flavors that include blackberry, blueberry and black current. The fruit flavors are framed by sweet herbs, licorice and toasted cedar. Rich and full-bodied, this superbly balanced wine has an expansive mid-palate and an exceptionally long finish. Its well-built tannins will allow it to age beautifully for more than a decade.

We selected grapes for the 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from
our premium Napa Valley vineyards including Sun Lake, Ghost Pines,
Sage Canyon and Cypress vineyards, plus a small amount from our
renowned Monte Rosso Vineyard. The 2014 season in Napa Valley
was excellent—dry and warm, with early bud break, steady temperatures
and long hang time. Consistently mellow temperatures through spring
and summer let the grapes ripen fully and evenly, then an unusually long
harvest gave us concentrated, well-structured fruit with exceptional
quality and depth.
The grapes were carefully harvested and destemmed, then transferred to
upright tanks for a two- to three-day cold soak. The must was pumped
over up to three times a day. The Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot lots
were racked and returned to soften their tannins. We tasted each lot
daily to determine the optimal drainage time, which led to some
extended maceration for the Cabernet. The lots were evaluated
separately as they aged, then combined and aged further to coalesce.
Total aging was 18 months in a mix of French and American oak
barrels (30% new, 70% used) with medium to heavy toast.
