2014 St. Clement Armstrong Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Although at a higher elevation, the vineyard is actually warmer than the valley floor most nights but cooler during the day. At harvest, it is the first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard to arrive at the winery, often beating our Carneros Chardonnay. The vineyard management by Luis Garlbay, is meticulous, he knows every single vine.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in the glass, the nose informs the palate what is to come. Black plums, cremé de cassis, dark chocolate and an alluring note of cedar shavings and graphite show the incredible depth of this wine. Baking spices and tobacco are apparent on the nose and balance with the dark mountain-fruit flavors. On the palate, glazed plum and dark fruit character shine with focused tannins, balanced by a long, satisfying finish. While approachable now, it will drink very well over the next 25+ years.
