2014 was another excellent vintage for Cabernet in Napa Valley. When you work with some of most renowned vineyards in the Valley, the result nears perfection. By blending in a little Sangiovese and a splash of Petit Verdot, we have heightened the aromatics and created a truly unique wine that Cabernet devotees, as well as those who appreciate “artful” blends, can enjoy.
Dark black fruit and leather aromas, reinforced with elegant oak features, dominate in the first waft from the glass. This wine exhibits a deep and full-bodied build with an exceptionally long, yet elegant, finish. Most noticeable in our signature blend are the fine silky tannins of the Valley floor. Good acidity with strong tannic structure leads us to believe this wine will age incredibly well for the next 10-15 years.

The 2014 Bacio Divino Proprietary Red is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Sangiovese sourced from all of the vineyards mentioned for his other wines, plus the Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford. This is a beautiful wine with plenty of blackberry and blueberry fruit, a hint of incense and charcoal, a dense full-bodied mouthfeel, outstanding purity, texture and length. This wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 25+ years. - Robert Parker 95 Points
A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend from heritage vineyards farmed by Andy Beckstoffer, this wine tastes of chocolate-covered clove, sage and a waft of eucalyptus, thick in concentration and firm, integrated tannin. While it presents itself as a big, bold wine, it retains balance and grace in the glass. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 93 Points
