2014 was another classic vintage. A mild winter and spring caused an early bud break followed by consistent temperatures throughout the summer, promoting even ripening.

Winemaking:
The wine rested sur lies to incorporate the oak so that the 18 months spent in 52% new barrels (three-year air dried French, 50% and American, 2%) is barely noticeable. Due to this vintage’s supple tannins, we left this wine in barrel for only 18 months before we bottled it unfiltered.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot

Winemaker Notes:
Our tenth vintage of this appellation Cabernet is blended from a combination of hillside and valley floor vineyards. Our style combines the harmony produced by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the voluptuousness gained from California’s weather, especially in this perfect vintage.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as appealing today as it was last year. Supple, open-knit and expressive, the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Floral and savory notes add an attractive upper register in this mid-weight, juicy 2014. Bright red stone fruit, plum and savory notes abound on the finish. This is a gorgeous Napa Valley Cabernet from David Ramey that shows just how appealing 2014 can be." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2017)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Plenty of currant and berry character follows through to a full body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Dry and delicious. Lovely balance and drinkability to this. Drink now." - (May 5, 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notions of cassis, warm plums and cedar chest with touches of tobacco, dried herbs and underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied with plenty of ripe, juicy black fruits and savory accents framed by grainy tannins and background freshness, finishing on an earthy note." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Jun 2018)
