Winemaker Notes - Mother Nature defines each vintage for a fine wine, and the 2013 vintage is no exception. In the winter of 2013, we saw above average temperatures and little rainfall in the Napa Valley. Needless to say, these grapes resulted in spectacular wines.
95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is a beauty. Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box. Full-bodied and opulent, with moderate tannin, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 20 or more years.
