4 Winds 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley


The wine is crafted by Ace Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.  The 2014 "4 Winds" Cabernet has an enticing aroma of layered notes of dark fruit, spice and vanilla. Soft tannins provide a sensual mouthfeel while flavors of black currant and licorice keep company with unexpected hints of eucalyptus and chocolate and well-integrated barrel influences.  Deep garnet in color and intriguingly complex overall, this beauty of a wine would pair effortlessly with braised short ribs, rosemary rubbed rack of lamb, black olives or a strong cheese like Cabot cheddar.  

Winemaker notes: " A notable freshness lingers upon opening, building to a bouquet that’s bursting with ripe dark berries, cassis and vanilla. Juicy flavors of ripe blackberry and boysenberry echo the nose, while Santa Rosa plum and chocolate emerge mid-palate. The bounty of ripe fruit is balanced by an integrated, ashy tannin making for a long finish. This inky, complex wine would pair stunningly with any espresso, cocoa, or rosemary rubbed beef. Its also the perfect companion to venison or lamb with a fruit-based sauce."
