MAYACAMAS CABERNET SAUVIGNON, MT. VEEDER NAPA VALLEY 2014
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is savory, fresh and super-inviting, as so many wines are in this vintage, Bright red cherry, iron, smoke, mint, wild flowers and anise all lift from the glass. Medium in body, taut and wonderfully focused, the 2014 is going to reward readers lucky enough to own it for many, many years. I especially like the pure energy and vibrancy that runs through the 2014.
NVWE Notes: Classically Mt. Veeder in personality and the best Mayacamas Cabernet in recent memory, this already gorgeous wine has a decade of growth ahead. The nose is drenched in juicy scents of Amarena cherry, red currant, Pomegranate syrup and orange-cranberry relish, which marry others of red rose petal, cedar, briar and vanilla toffee. Concentrated fruit energy is the dominant impression in the mouth, where tannic grip, fruit zest, mineral undercurrents and dried herbal hints make their presence known. The finish is long and firm, but polished, so dinner-service is already a pleasurable possibility. Blended with 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot, 4396 cases made.
