2014 cade Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Winemaker Notes:
The 2014 vintage was ideal with exceptional growing conditions throughout the season. In early September, a surging heat spike boosted both sugars and flavors into an exquisite red and black fruit zone. This fruit zone built fragrant aromas of black cherry, ripe raspberry, melted milk chocolate, and clove. Elegantly structured, this wine boasts smooth tannins that glide across the palate. The wine finishes with flavors of blackberry compote, coco nibs, and bright red fruits. The 2014 vintage has an elegance and roundness to it which makes it ideal for drinking now or cellaring for 5-7 years.
