Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

DuMOL

Opaque dark purple color. Deep, pure, dark aromas: cassis, blackberry and plum. Intensely floral with savory complexity: sage, pine needle, cedar and sweet tobacco. Beautifully integrated wine, layered and textured with a long sleek flavor delivery along the entire arc of the palate. Ripe blue and black fruits, building density, sweet chewy tannins with mineral freshness on the lively supple finish. Lingering licorice, floral gravelly lift. Demonstrating the gorgeous purity that is the hallmark of this elegant vintage, our 2014 Napa Cabernet fits perfectly into the DuMOL stylistic playbook.

Reviews

  • "95+ points. This is the first release of this wine, sourced from Coombsville and Spring Mountain AVAs. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is incredibly lifted and perfumed with notes of violets and roses over a core of crushed red and black currants, blackberries and cigar box. The palate offers great depth with layers of vibrant black and red berry flavors and wonderfully ripe, grainy tannins to support, finishing long and lively. While very tempting to drink now, I recommend readers forget it for 3-4 years and then drink for the next 25+. 600 cases were made." (Wine Advocate)
  • "95 points. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a blend of fruit from sites in Coombsville and Spring Mountain. A wine of sublime aromatic intensity and sensuality, the 2014 is absolutely brilliant. Bright red cherry, plum, tobacco, white pepper and a host of savory notes give the 2013 its super-classic profile and structural feel. If you can find it, don't miss it!" (vinous)
