2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Appassimento
Arguably the most important red wine grape in the world, a distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon is one of life’s great pleasures. We choose our Cabernet sites carefully: warm days with lots of sunshine, cool nights to preserve the balance of the fruit, well-drained soils, and gentle slopes. Our Appassimento Cab is made in a style similar to northern Italy’s celebrated Amarone and displays a lavish richness that is almost port-like. The grapes are allowed to dry slowly on the vine, which intensely concentrates the ﬂavors. The ﬁnal result is a full bodied and brooding beauty with generous aromas of dark plum, raisin and dried fig flavors and notes of bittersweet chocolate. Dark candied fruit gives way to a decadently rich ﬁnish with surprising elegance. Drinking beautifully now, this is one to lay down for a decade or more.
