The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a fairly light color for Cabernet showing a pinkish, rose colored hue. However, looks do deceive as this wine certainly packs a punch. First off, aromatic layers of tobacco leaf, black currant, and pencil lead jump off the glass and into the nose reminding you of a classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate a hint of white pepper is shown initially, due to the warm weather of Lake County, which leads into compatible notes of fig jam, mint, and toasty oak. This particular wine is loved for its high concentration, without seeming over manipulated, and should have some fantastic age worthiness for years to come. This Cabernet will give the best Napa ones a run for their money! Definitely a steal. Feel free to pair with a standard like a Rib Eye Steak or feel adventurous pairing with Gorgonzola Drizzled Brisket with Crispy Fried Onions. Yum! Drink now through 2030. Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
