“This new release from the celebrated 2014 vintage is a collector-level wine that won’t break the bank. Rich, plush, and forward, this impressive effort is exemplary of the high quality of Napa’s top vintages. Deep and dark in the glass, aromas of black cherry, cassis, and espresso entice the pallate. The tannins are polished and charming, furnishing layers of currant, cassis, baking spices, and hints of vanilla cream on the delightful finish. Given the intensity of this wine, it is quite satisfying now (decanting recommended) + there is no doubt that it will continue to deliver pleasure for the next 5 – 7 years.” - California Wine Advisors
