Description

This wine is quintessential Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon: presenting both power and finesse, with deep, dark cassis and black cherry fruit; sage, nutmeg and vanilla spice; a velvety texture with a plush, juicy finish that lingers luxuriously on the palate.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cabernet Franc 3% Malbec 3% Petit Verdot 1% Merlot

92 Points James Suckling - Aromas of flower, tile and currant follow through to a full body that's nevertheless tight and reserved. Such beauty at the finish. A pretty wine. Hard not to drink now.

91 Points 
Wine Advocate - The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Some spicy oak, crème de cassis and background barrique smells a re present in this youthful, classic Cabernet Sauvignon made by the long-time winemaker at Mondavi, Geneviève Janssens. This wine is still relatively tightly knit, especially for a 2014, and requires a bit of coaxing, but the black and red currant fruit, the classic Pauillac-like cedar wood, and spice box are all present in this is medium to full-bodied wine. It should be given 3-4 years of bottle age then drunk over following 20-25 years.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast - This wine has a juicy core of cranberry, currant and red cherry that's both powerful and graceful, exuding full-bodied richness within a context of supportive oak and tannin. The finish is dusted in coffee and nutmeg.
