This Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the year with its radiant fruit and bouquet of vanilla bean, baking spices, and fresh tobacco leaf. The flavors are bright and focused with gorgeous layers of confit plum, blackberry jam and hibiscus. This expansive Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with flavors of smoked cherry wood and smooth integrated tannins.

Wine AdvocateHer 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes 56% from her holdings on Mt. Veeder and 44% from the home vineyard on Howell Mountain. It is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is another beauty, with a deep blue/purple color and notes of blueberry, blackberry, licorice, charcoal and a touch of graphite. It is full-bodied, nicely layered, with velvety tannin and 2014's signature up-front, irresistible fruit, charm and overall balance, but without compromising intensity and length. Drink it over the next 15+ years.
