"Violet color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate covered berries, mocha nuts, and purple flowers with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, interesting, medium-long finish displaying accents of chocolate orange peels, berry chutney on raisin toast, and spiced nuts with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A juicy, chewy, fruit-forward Cabernet that is sure to please."

"This big but smooth wine has quiet power, offering subtle grilled-herb and black-olive aromas, black cherry and black currant on the palate, and an envelope of fine-grained tannins. It seems closed up at this stage, but should develop more complexity with time. Best from 2028. - JIM GORDON"

"Rubbery black-fruit aromas lead to a firm, tight and drying palate. This Cab first tastes of saucy berry fruits, then savory oak and wood grain come into play. A short, wiry finish is marks the close. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

"The 2014 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon shows the Cabernet's more chocolaty, tobacco leaf and black and red currant side and has a similar color to its stable mates. The wine boasts loads of fruit, good texture and length. All of these wines probably have more aging potential than I would risk, but they are clearly meant to be drunk when released, and no doubt will hold onto their fruity intensity for several years, if not longer."
