On the nose, this wine is intense, vibrant and lively, showing intriguing notes of earth, cedar, tobacco leaf and smoky black tea. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, poised and precise, with layers of dark fruits and silky tannins that perfectly support its sweet core. Notes winemaker Francoise Peschon, “What strikes me most about this wine is how earth driven it is – wet clay, loam, scorched earth, enlivened by floral notes and hints of savory spices. The texture is sublime, with super-refined tannins at the entry, following through the mid palate with a power that builds slowly and evenly to a persistent mineral finish. It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon.”
95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon gives a deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with notes of warm black currants and red currants preserves plus touches of sandalwood, cigar box, spice box, licorice and menthol and the faintest hints of forest floor and potpourri. Medium-bodied with a fantastic intensity of red and black fruits and accented with pepper, spice and earthy notions, it has a firm, chewy backbone and great freshness, finishing with lingering mineral notes.
