Beautiful notes of chocolate-covered strawberries open the 2014 Vineyard 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, melding into a luxurious balance of dark cherries and dark chocolate with marjoram and thyme. Parker said “this is a stunner.” Intense black fruit on the palate, satiny tannins and a lengthy finish of ripe fruits make this a Cabernet that can be enjoyed now or aged for years to come.
As for their flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon 29 Estate, this is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon from the so-called Grace clone and 2% Petit Verdot that was aged 20 months in 85% new French oak. Only 740 cases were made of this opaque purple-colored wine that offers up terrific fruit, loads of blackberry, blueberry, spring flowers, a touch of charcoal and graphite, followed by a multidimensional, full-bodied mouthfeel with sweet tannin and a finish of 45+ seconds. Drink now-2038. This is a stunner.
