Memento Mori 2014 “Cabernet Sauvignon - 97 POINTS


FREE SHIPPING* on 3, use code MORI14 @ checkout


This venture is still somewhat below the radar, although I’ve been working with them for about 5 years now.  Tiny production, but amazing quality Cabernet sourced from one of Napa’s premium vinyeards, which would be classified as  a “First Growth Vineyard” in France – So let’s call it “Top-of-the-line” here!


Memento Mori is translated from Latin as “Remember That You Will Die”.  The Winery owners’ (Hayes Drumwright, Adriel Lares & Adam Craun) translation is “Remember To Live”.


Robert Parker 97 Points: “Winemaker and proprietor Sam Kaplan is behind this absolutely brilliant 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a composite blend from three famous Napa vineyards B Weitz, Las Piedras, and Dr. Crane, the last two owned by the ubiquitous and omnipresent Andy Beckstoffer. A wine of great intensity, voluptuous, full-bodied texture, tremendous blueberry and blackberry fruit, with white flowers, charcoal embers and spice, the wine has superb texture, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that goes on for close to 50 seconds. The tannins are creamy and ripe, and the wine irresistible already. Drink it over the next 30 years. This is brilliant!”


Winemaker Sam Kaplan says: “The quality vintages continue following 2012 and 2013. The powerful 2014 welcomes you with voracious aromas of spice bread and meat followed by viscous drops of bright cherry compote. Fleshy tannins pierce through the gravity of the middle palate and the finish reveals the subtleties of sage and thyme that render this wine timeless. Drink now with proper decanting or cellar for 20 years+.”
