Marked by an abiding sense of precise, well-extracted, blackcurrant fruit and decked out with a liberal dose of creamy, always complementary, sweet oak, this deeply-drawn offering impresses from the very first sniff and builds famously from there. It is full and carefully constructed with a fine spine of integral tannins and the kind of concentration, composition and balance that guarantees it will get better with time even while easy to like now, and it is a welcome reminder that very good Napa Valley Cabernet can be had without breaking the bank. *Good Value*
I looked at five barrel samples from Sequoia Grove. One of them, amazingly, was their 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, which is their least expensive wine and not yet in bottle. This is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Good, delicious Cabernet, with plenty of mostly red and black fruits, some spice, not a great deal of complexity, but fleshy and mouth-filling, it should be drunk over the next decade. (RP)
Tasted from barrel, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, supple and fruity, all qualities that will make it easy to drink pretty much once it is released. Attractive scents of mocha, espresso and red plum wrap around the finish. (AG)
