100% Estate (Winfield Vineyard) Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa/Calistoga. Thomas Brown, Winemaker. 100% French Oak, 20 months. Winemaker's tasting notes: "The 2014 Winfield Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon provides a wealth of hedonistic enjoyment immediately upon opening the bottle. The chromatic profile of the wine is noted by an opaque purple hue with a deep rose halo around the rim. Aromatic noes of spearmint, bramble and crushed blackberries swell out of the glass. On the palate, the profile takes a darker, more intense turn towards notes of cocoa nib, sage smoke, tobacco leaf, cassis, lavender oil and grilled Portobello. The fine tannin structure is most pronounced on the edges of the palate, which provides a confident framework for the dense, layered fruit core. This wine is ready to experience now, and in 2-3 years in the cellar it will be come increasingly more elegant and integrated."
