2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

55.00

Our first bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of chocolate-covered
cherries alongside bright floral notes. The entry of this wine is juicy with
smooth texture that builds through the mid-palate. Mouthwatering dark
cherry and cassis flavors are supported by well-integrated oak. This wine
is an excellent balance of lush, mouth-filling tannins and bright, fresh
acidity on the finish. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.

WINEMAKING NOTES

We have been very fortunate to help make Cabernet Sauvignon for some of the best wineries in Napa over the years, and relished the chance to take what we have learned and apply it to our own wine. A portion of this wine was barrel fermented and the rest was fermented in stainless steel, the free run of which was aged for 18 months in half new french oak.

 

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 was a very nice growing season on Rippey Ranch, and we were
able to obtain our desired ripeness levels in both sugar and tannin. This
fruit comes from block 16, which has the best concentration of flavors of
our Cabernet blocks and was therefore a "no-brainer" when we decided to start vinifying wines for the Rippey Label.
