Yet another drought year, the smooth moderate temperatures of 2014 allowed for gentle development and concentration of flavor. This long hang time gave us beautiful ripeness with layers of fruit and sweet mature tannins. Rich warm aromas of cigar box, creamy vanilla and damp earth, give way to a lush and generous mouth full of ripe plum and sweet cherries. Well-balanced oak supports a finish of milk chocolate and integrated tannins completing the graceful arc in the mouth.

Intriguing, with an overt mint, sage and savory lead-in followed by a reserved core of red currant, loganberry and raspberry fruit flavors. Pure and racy in feel, with light bramble and apple wood notes scoring the very end. Lovely energy and range, albeit in a cooler, more herb-inflected style. Drink now through 2028. 3,000 cases made.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and the rest Petite Sirah, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley spent 21 months in 35% new French oak. It's a medium-bodied, rounded, slightly mid-weight, yet charming 2014 that offers notes of plums, herbs, spice and underbrush. It's ideal for drinking over the coming decade.

Smoky char on the oak emphasizes savory and earthy aspects of this weighty wine, a combination of tobacco leaf, pencil and compost. A hearty 9% Merlot is added, as are 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Petite Sirah.
