Kenzo Asuka Cabernet Franc Napa Estate 2014

The 2013 Kenzo Asuka is a classic in the making and exactly what you expect a “Cult” Cabernet to taste like. Sophisticated and powerful, this wine offers up a beautiful and complex bouquet of black fruit, tobacco leaf and cedar. A textbook example of the 2014 vintage, it delivers a graceful expression of dark fruit richness, hints of spices, and a long, persistent finish emblematic of this winemaker’s flair. The texture is velvety and the balance is impeccable, suggesting that it will cellar for 20+ years if that is a priority. Plus, this is a majestic red that will thrill now (decant prior to 2025). This is the finest release of this wine we’ve tasted to day.
