Our 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays dense, concentrated aromas of ripe boysenberry, blackberry, dark plum and cassis, with a hint of spice, preface intense, deeply concentrated, blackberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry flavors, culminating in a long finish shot through with a blackberry fruitiness. With a superb balance of rich fruit, bright acidity and polished tannins, this youthful red merits another 7-10 years of bottle aging, although no one who opens it sooner will be disappointed.

RESTAURANT WINE – 2014 VINTAGE
February 01, 2018 – The 2014 Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a fantastic showing in this vintage, which consists of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. It immediately bursts open to seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and dark currants, which are woven together with spices, cinnamon, loam and mocha nuances all soaring from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous, with incredible depth and concentration, as it delivers layers of ripe dark fruits and spices, which build up to the long, opulent finish.
