"Bright, dark red. Musky blueberry, licorice, mocha and minerals on the bright nose. Considerably denser and sweeter than the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon but still with a fine-grained texture and an absence of hard edges, not to mention enticing peppery lift. In texture and mouth feel, this reminds me more of a juicy Cabernet--and a classy one at that. Energetic, firmly built wine with lively, harmonious acidity and fine-grained tannins. There's nothing weighty or superripe about this beautifully balanced wine. Stephen Tanzer"
