2014 Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
You taste the immediate pleasure of early season summer ripe strawberries, with almost ripe blackberries and red cassis. Behind the fruit, there are hints of of toasted nuts, peppercorn and sandalwood. The palate starts with a narrow focus and then jets out with an impressive width, lending a very delicious and textural experience to the wine. You are left with an explosion of red fruit - like a million heart emojis being released in the sky.

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from Oakville shows plenty of blackberry, cassis, graphite, licorice, an opaque purple color, sweet blue and black fruits with ripe tannin and a nice, well-delineated full-bodied mouthfeel. Like most 2014s, it is already showing plenty of charm and fruit, but this has slightly more structure than many of them and would probably benefit from several years of bottle age, and keep for 20 or more years." -- Robert Parker
