2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sourced from Oakville, Rutherford & Atlas Peak
Classic Cabernet Sauvignon, bottled to perfection by Nils Venge. This vintage is a balanced gem of flavor to power, where notes of oak and slate temper rich, dense, dark berry. Not jammy, this wine is instead finessed and fresh, and endlessly complementary to food and firesides. The vintage year of 2014 garnered sensational reviews for its vitality and softness, and Nils' phenomenal Reserve Cabernet is no exception.
On the nose, robust Mirabelle plum wafts, lightly tempered by rain-wet sidewalk. A restrained, silky body warms the palate with flavors of lush black raspberry and bright black olive. Finesse on the finish is endless, with earthy, relaxed tannins and lingering flavors of espresso and fig.
Pair with char-broiled meats, particularly a Tomahawk, T-bone or nicely marbled steak, or wood-fired, grilled meats. Sips nicely with dark chocolate.
Only 79 cases made.
