The nose on this wine opens with a long, smooth note of berries, followed closely by a dollop of milk chocolate. Swirl the glass for a moment and you will start to find the darker characters that define Cabernet Sauvignon; cassis riddled through with hints of anise and herbs du Provence. On the palate the first thing you will notice is a solid footing of acidity and a delightful rush of rich, smooth tannin. The mouthfeel on this wine is well worth noting, it fills the palate and sets the stage for characters of black cherry and warm summer blackberries. Linger over the glass, and you will find subtle notes of tobacco and cedar, with just a hint of brown sugar showing through every now and then. The finish on this wine is long and mellow, with the dark flavors of Cabernet giving way to soft characters of raspberry and red licorice.

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard is deep garnet-purple colored and displays alluring chocolate box and licorice scents over a core of crème de cassis, sandalwood, black soil and plum preserves with touches of potpourri and dried herbs. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed to the gills with ripe, rich black fruits, it has a firm, grainy frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.

Similar to the 2015, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley (93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot) offers a terrific sense of depth and richness yet stays balanced and elegant. Currants, graphite, dried herbs, and earth notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon that has fine, building tannin and a great finish. Like the 2015, it's going to be long-lived.
