2014
Yountville

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

Harvested from a single vineyard on State Lane in the warmer northern reaches of Yountville, considered the “prime spot”, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon benefited from the AVA’s rocky, well-drained soils and a long growing season that allowed the fruit time to develop unique flavor characteristics and truly demonstrate the region’s terroir.     

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon opens with tantalizing aromas of Bing cherry, vanilla and herbs.

Flavors of mulberry, star anise and hints of caramel. 

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2014 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
