"King Coal" 2014

K Vintners

Stoneridge Vineyard, scorched earth, olive brine, saddle leather comes through from the first whiff. Focused, yet broad mouth feel delivers moss, forest floor, tobacco and bacon, which leads to a conclusion that goes on forever in this complex and super exciting wine.

Reviews

  • "95 points. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon King Coal Stoneridge Vineyard is another 80/20 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the Stoneridge Vineyard. It offers notes of black cherries, red currants, dried flowers and dried soil/sandy notes, full-bodied richness and a seamless, silky, lightly textured and elegant style. It's impeccably balanced and while already straight up delicious, is going to age gracefully." (Wine Advocate)
  • "94 points. Cellar Selection. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah, the aromas draw you into the glass, with light notes of savory herb, cassis, pipe tobacco, spice and crushed rock. It brings a flat-out gorgeous sense of texture, covering the palate from end to end with cherry flavors that glide on the finish. The feel is knee-buckling. Best after 2021." (Wine Enthusiast)
