Spice, dried-flower, forest-floor and mushroom character. Turns to blackcurrants and blackberries. Full-bodied and focused: pinpoint precision. So much subtle blackberry and licorice character. Velvety. Superb length and consistency.
Far more consumer friendly is the 2014 Futo OV/SL, which is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The lusciousness of this vintage is showcased by this seamless, beautifully pure and superbly crafted wine, which has an inky purple color and a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis, blackberry, spring flowers and subtle background oak. The wine is opulent, full-bodied and majestic. (RP)
The 2014 OV SL represents a big step up from the 2013. Powerful and yet finessed, the 2014 turns increasingly precise with time as the vibrancy of the fruit comes into focus. The flavors are dark and textured, but it is the wine's sense of poise that really elevates it into the realm of the sublime. This is another tremendous wine from Futo. For several years, the team has been engaged in elevating the OV SL to a level closer in quality to the Futo and 5500, rather than a second wine, as it was a few years ago. The 2014 is a wine where that jump in quality is evident. The percentage of Stags Leap fruit (just over 40%) is the highest so far. (AG)
