Tasting Notes
Aromatically there are pronounced notes of violet, milk chocolate, vanilla, cassis and a slight pulse of forest floor and graphite. The beginning signs of bottle bouquet have surfaced with the associated aromatic complexity. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich and full entry with equal parts power and elegance. Ripe and supple tannins carry through to the finish. Tempting now, but wait 3-4 years and enjoy over the next 12+ years.
Winemaker Notes
In 25 years, when we look back on the 2012, 2013 and 2014 vintages, I believe it will go down in history as the greatest three-year stretch California has ever seen. It is nearly impossible to say one is better than another. A more accurate statement is that all three vintages are outstanding, yet showcase different nuances of the respective varietal. This 3 year timespan of nearly perfect growing conditions has enabled us to practice great winemaking with the 2014 vintage being the pinnacle. Our 2014 Rockpile Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is focused, concentrated and has great energy.
