Grand Reserve Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This Cabernet has distinct flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plus both red and black currants with enticing fragrances of mocha and nutmeg. Subtle notes of chocolate and toasty vanilla add to the richness and length of this bold Cab, and are accompanied by fine grained tannins on a lengthy finish.

Acclaim

90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Oct 2016
"The outstanding 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve is another Sonoma bottling. It is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest the usual suspects in the Bordeaux grape variety category. Dense ruby/purple, with a big, sweet kiss of créme de cassis, licorice, graphite and new wood, the wine is full-bodied, dense, rich, nicely textured and quite long. This wine will actually age nicely for a decade or more."

Winemaking

Aged for 16 months in 73% French oak (16% new) and 27% American oak.

Vineyards

Grapes are sourced from lower-yielding, higher-elevation, estate blocks and vineyards. Roughly 70% of the wine is from the same vineyard blocks year-to-year, ensuring greater consistency and enhanced complexity with each vintage
