Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2014 District Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied, well- balanced wine. This particular vintage opens with enticing notes of white pepper and star anise. 

Palate: 

Deep red fruit and spice seductively tempt the palate providing a long, deep finish with a touch of minerality. The great structure and well balanced tannins allow for immediate enjoyment.

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.
