2014 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Flagship Cabernet Sauvignon by Winemaker Nils Venge
Nils' vibrant Cabernet out of Napa Valley's noble Oakville District. This elevated gem finds a warm and inviting lane on the palate that has it delicious now, and worthy of aging 20 years. On the nose, pleasing aromas of black currant and anise. On the palate, it approaches with a warm, soft, full mouthfeel, where engaging tannins balance gracefully with ripe raspberry compote, and a hint of cassis. This wine is a straightforward stunner. A flavorful finish is generous with lingering notes of chocolate.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up beautiful, chocolaty crème de cassis fruit with a touch of background oak, a full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel, and a luscious finish with no hard edges. It is classic Nils Venge Cabernet Sauvignon and should age nicely for up to 20 years, although it is going to be delicious when released.
