2014 was the third straight outstanding growing season in a row, following the excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages. Dry winter and spring conditions limited canopy vigor, and a warm growing season with a lack of extreme heat spikes resulted in prolonged, even ripening through harvest. The resulting wines possess great site specificity, depth and quality.
Dark ruby hue with perfumes of cedar, dark chocolate, fig and tobacco. Juicy flavors of boysenberry & plums with baking spice cloves and cardamom Long savory notes with a tannin structure the coats the entire palate.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn (Napa Valley) is plump, juicy and forward, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, chocolate, menthol and spices are all pushed forward. Drink this succulent, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon over the next few years. - Antonio Galloni 88 Points
