92 Points - Vinous
71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah, 9% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Mourvèdre
Opens with beautifully lifted aromatics of fresh spearmint, black cherry compote, sugar plum and hints of chocolate hazelnut crunch. A round, supple entry leads to a silky smooth mid-palate. Crème de cassis, blueberry reduction, cedar cigar box and toasted oak complement the baked black and ripe red fruit essence. Fine grained, age-worthy tannin provides structure to the persistant, juicy finish. Enjoy now until 2026.
The 2014 Reserve comprises a unique blend. An intermix of Rhône and Bordeaux varietals creates a multi-layed facet to this predominately heavy Cabernet Sauvignon. Clones 8 and 337 Cabernet Savignon are accentuated by the robust Syrah, the dark color of the Petit Verdot, the bright fruit of the Merlot, and the subtle spice of the Mourvèdre. It was aged for 22 months in French Oak with approximately 80% new.
