ROCCA FAMILY CABERNET SAUVIGNON, GRIGSBY VINEYARD, YOUNTVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2014
NVWE Notes: The supple ripeness of 2014 is very evident on this opulent bottling and that goes a long way to softening the Grigsby Vineyard’s typically severe tannins. The nose is juicy-rich and, as always, herbal-mineral accented: yet it’s dominated by lavish scents of blackberry coulis, blueberry pie, black raspberry jam, dark sour cherry, crushed dry red rose and violet: this all immersed in a bath of bouillon, sweet vanilla, dark pipe tobacco, dried sage, bay leaf and cedar over strong charcoal-graphite minerality. It proves luxuriously textured and flavor-packed in the mouth, where the tannins bring a hard dryness to a lingering finish that is expressive of cherry, dark berry, fig, cola, peppercorn and herbal spice. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1020 cases made.
As one might expect, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Grigsby Vineyard has a more saturated ruby/purple color and attractive notes of barbecue smoke, charcoal embers, blackcurrants and black cherries as well as soft, silky tannins. Medium to full-bodied, this is a classic 2014 to drink now and over the next 10-15 years.
