2014 showing really well right now. Astringent up front with dark currant. Nice restraint on the palate. Not overly-oaked

Over-the-top, but I think that was essentially the point.

Big dark berries, but dry, high tannins. Great blend, needs a minute to open up

A blend of Cab Sauvignon, Merlot & Cab Franc, aged for 10 months in French oak, 35% new. Very dark red with big ripe fruit aromas with gentle oak notes. Flavors of rich blackberry and cherry show up with cacao and a bit of perfect spice. Big tannins, full that open up nicely dispite its youth. Lingering finish ending with some mineral notes. Very nice should drink well for next decade.

This 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied and a wonderful accompaniment to a hearty meal. Loved it, but not nearly as much as my fave Orin Swift wine... Papillon!

Found a ‘15 on a restaurant list. A blend of Cab Sauv (mostly), Merlot & Cab Franc, aged for 10 months in French oak, 35% new. Very dark red with big ripe fruit aromas with spice & oak notes. Flavors of blackberry, raspberry and currants mingle nicely with cacao and spice. Big full tannins that open up nicely. Lingering finish ending with some mineral notes. Should age well for next decade.

Deeper flavors and more refined texture than 2014. 👍
