Sage and other herbs on the nose. Blackberry fruit on the silky palate. Plenty of oak, mostly new, add grippy tannins leading to a fine finish. This one will improve with bottle age to be sure.

Pretty darn good Cabernet with a nice acidity that can be lacking in 2012s. Great balance, cherry and cola, no trace of new oak, and very, very tasty.

The Year of the Quake in Napa!! 2014 represents one of the best vintages of the decade...mouth-coating flavors of blueberries, plums, and spices with pleasant ripe tannins & notes of toffee, fresh sage and cigar box on the long and pleasant finish.
