Vertical tasting for Christmas and this vintage won my heart (though 2013 came in a close second). Most fragrant, full of berries...rich, decadent, lush.

The 2014 is smokier on the nose. Denser, gamier, happier.

Dark fruits, violet, cocoa, gravel and herbs. Complex and interesting palate until the finish of fresh red fruit with a touch of tart acid. Afterwards a lingering smooth grip of tannins with notes of the evolving flavors that preceded left me eager to try more. A really lovely blend with well integrated oak and an alcohol content one wouldn’t suspect.

This is a real value wine. I have always enjoyed Matthews wines but the seen to come and go from market . Sometimes years at a time. This is a delicious blend. Check it out.

I love this cab dominate blend. It's big and bold with great legs.
