“The 2014 Di Costanzo is a candidate for undiscovered Cabernet ‘bargain’ of the vintage. Enticing aromas of fresh blue and red berries intermingle with lavender and subtle spices. There is marvelous finesse here, showcasing red berries, floral notes, and a core of refreshing dark fruit. It is a majestic wine that displays awe-inspiring balance plus harmonious oak on the prodigious finish. It is showing marvelously right now (after decanting) and will evolve gracefully to be savored anytime through 2027.” - California Wine Advisors

Background
Massimo Di Constanzo refined his substantial skills as the day to day winemaker at Screaming Eagle before launching his eponymous Cabernet label. To guarantee exceptional quality, Di Costanzo has secured coveted grapes most recently reserved for Opus One which now trades for triple the price of this undiscovered relative value. The 2014 Di Costanzo is Massimo’s personal reserve-level bottling and a strong ‘pre-Cult’ recommendation. We suggest RSVP today since we've only got 10 cases!
