2014 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon
2014 was a vintage of harmony and balance; It saw a beautiful growing season filled with soft light and cool length, perfectly highlighting our Western exposure Oakville vineyards - especially our Leopoldina vineyard.
Leopoldina Vineyard sits at 800 feet in elevation on the Oakville Bench, replete with red clay soils and steep, rocky slopes. The site yields a wine that is richly textured and structure driven. Enter 2014 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon.
Elegant restraint sets a new course for this Napa Valley classic. A core of dark plum & pomegranate reduction lead the aromatic tempest. Engaging texture details dark hedonistic fruit on the horizon while closer notes of resin, roasted sage and crème de cassis rollick. Rich dark and red currants exalt.
