Winemaker Notes
Bold, complex and dense are just some of the ways to describe our 2014 Chairman Series Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of wild berries, smoke, anise and mocha lead the aroma. As the flavors fan out across the palate, jammy berry notes dominate with a sweet spice nuance for added depth. Strong, velvety tannins round out the palate framing the lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with spicy meatballs or pomegranate rubbed lamb shanks.

Production Notes
2014 was a vintage of both high quality and quantity of fruit. An early bud break in the last week of February and a warm, dry spring led to a slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. Despite the lack of rainfall, the timing of the growth of the vines was perfect. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. The fruit was harvested in cool temperatures and at full maturity, from October 9th-16th, 2014.
