2014 represents the third vintage of our all estate-grown Cabernet sauvignon grapes
but in many ways it represents four decades of tasting, learning, experimenting
and executing on the passion inspired in me by the words of André Tchelistcheff.
‘Rutherford Dust’—the idea that a wine could smell and taste so much of the place
from where it was grown.
The 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is classic in every way: intense aromas of dark fruits, blackberry and cassis with lovely overtones of mocha and coffee bean. The flavors are subtle and nuanced while precisely balanced and deep. It is a wine for the cellar, of course, but will not disappoint in the shorter term paired with a nice rack of lamb or perhaps a Chateaubriand.
