Wow, to my recollection, this is my first Happy Canyon Cabernet.. definitely my first higher end one - and it did not disappoint. Beautiful nose with some dried rose petals, briary black fruit, and licorice. Palate is pretty rich and powerful. Alcohol is pronounced but it's not necessarily distracting. Great flavor and I think it'll only get better with 3-5 years of age.

For those that enjoy some chocolate on the finish after a generally well balanced Cabernet will enjoy this wine. The 2014 is still too young; wait some years before opening.

Decanted 3 hours. Gorgeous golden ruby red color. Cassis with floral notes on the nose. Dense in the mouth. Deep blackberry, black cherry, licorice, vanilla, oak beautiful flavors. Very young, and should age nicely. Nice long finish.
