Winemaker Notes
We sourced the grapes for this 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. A generous vintage, this wine has intense and rich aromas of blackberry, cassis, and roasted coffee. The palate delivers on flavor, with black cherry, nutmeg, vanilla and all spice at the forefront. The texture is creamy, round and defined by the richness and weight of the tannins.

Production Notes
2014 produced fruit of high quality and quantity. An earlier that average bud break began in the last week of February, and a warm spring led to an early bloom and fruit set. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. We harvested the fruit on September 12th through October 18th, 2014.
Vineyard Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.
