This opulent treasure exemplifies Napa Cabernet at its best, promising supreme gratification tonight, plus guaranteed to delight for a decade to come. The new 2014 Reserve Cabernet displays a divinely cashmere-like texture, deftly balanced with a voluptuous core of dark cherry and cassis on the front palate with hints of roasted espresso and allspice. We savored the lavish amounts of kirsch, mocha and blackberry flavors supported by supple, ultra fine-grained tannins. The statuesque finish includes notes of exuberant toasted oak and vanilla. Collectors may enjoy this thoroughbred now (after decanting) for a 97 point experience, evolving into 98+ points through 2030.
