Red Wine 2014

The Paring

Utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and dark notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined Paring Red. A study in elegance.

Reviews

  • "89 points. The 2014 Red is absolutely delicious. Red berry, herb, licorice, smoke, menthol and dark spice notes all flesh out in the glass. Pliant and super-inviting, the 2014 is going to be irresistible upon release. I can't think of too many California Cabernets that deliver this much quality and pure pleasure for the money." (vinous)
