2014 marks 125 years of winemaking on our estate. We are excited to showcase the
Cabernet Sauvignon from this important year in our history. Vibrant and textured this
wine offers aromas of red raspberry, sarsaparilla and black pepper. This wine has
beautiful structure – elegant tannins and length are highlighted by notes of bay laurel, all
spice, and mulberry. Secondary notes of graphite, black olive and cacao hint at classic
wines of the old world.
Our grapes are harvested early to retain bright acidity and firm tannins. For fermentation
we utilize a combination of cement vat fermenters, open-top foudre and stainless steel.
After approximately two weeks on skins, we gently press and are ready for aging. The 2014
Cabernet aged 32 months in neutral oak – 20 months in large format foudre and 12 months
in barrique. After bottling, the wine was cellared for 12 additional months before release.
