The Story:  Sean Rooeny was raised in a winemaking family, but went east to pursue the law. But the siren song of wine disrupted his life in the courtroom. He found himself home, walking vineyards at dawn, instead of reading case files at midnight. They say what is meant for you will not pass you by.  So Sean considers this wine to be the finest expression of “sabotage”.

 

The Wine: This young bold Napa Cabernet (83% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cab franc, 6% merlot, 4% petit verdot & 1% Malbec) sourced from three vineyards on Diamond Mountain, Atlas Peak and St. Helena, offers up intense aromatics of bold black fruit, a whiff of spice and a touch of graphite. The 2014 “Sabotage” Cabernet offers up a very intense, yet very elegant palate of bold red, blue and black stone fruits that are well balanced by hints of chocolate, currant and a touch of vanilla. The young silky grained tannins will evolve over time and help expand the long finish of this great wine.

 

 

Winemaker Notes: “In spite of mother nature sabotaging the Napa Valley with drought and an earthquake, I consider the 2014 vintage in Napa Valley a very strong vintage of high quality with depth of flavor and excellent, unique character. Despite the drought, the Napa Valley produced some spectacular weather, nearly perfection for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The Mountain fruit specifically came in at an even pace and with well developed fruit character and bright acidity. The wine was aged for 20 months in 100% French oak with 40% of that New.”
