Cabernet Sauvignon, "Terroir Series" 2014

Revana Family

Fragrances of cinnamon, bing cherries, vanilla, black tea, sage and a unique cocoa aroma. Ripe cherry and plum, followed by baking spices and a wet stone minerality hinting of pencil lead.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Pure, rich, dense and driven by extracted blackberry, boysenberry, licorice, currant, cedar and cigar box nuances. Most impressive for the direct and authoritative presence. Best from 2020 through 2038. 1,300 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "94 points. The 2014 Revana 'Terroir Selection' Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense and masculine wine from this estate. This gorgeous and intense Cabernet begins with profound aromatics of crème de cassis, mocha, tobacco leaf, tar and anise. Dense, chewy and downright delicious, this displays hedonistic flavors of dark chocolate shavings, coffee grounds, hoisin sauce, crème de cassis and blackberry preserves. Seductive and rich, this is impossible to resist at the moment, but this wine also has some serious cellaring potential as well. (Best 2017-2035)." (International Wine Report)
