Notes of crème de cassis mingle with notions of pencil shavings and loamy soil in a complex bouquet, introducing the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a medium-bodied, layered and richly tannic wine with a good core of juicy fruit and a chewy, firm finish. It will need a few years to unwind and should be worth following for the better part of a decade. (WK) 93+
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Gramercy checks in as a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot that spent 21 months in 40% new French oak. It offers a fresh, lively style in its cassis, blackcurrant, spice, and underbrush/tobacco aromas and flavors. With medium to full body, beautiful balance, undeniable elegance, and everything in the right place, it's going to drink nicely for 15-20 years. 92+
Good dark red. Rather delicate scents of cassis, raspberry and cocoa powder. Wonderfully smooth, sweet wine with mellow flavors of blackcurrant, spices and graphite. Tannins spread out horizontally on the very refined, long aftertaste. "I'm not looking to make blockbuster Cabs," said Harrington. (ST)
Aromas of dried herb, raspberry, moist earth and pencil lead are followed by soft elegant red- and black-fruit flavors. It shows a very pretty, understated styling, with a fine sense of acidity backing it up. Raspberry flavors linger on the finish. There's a wonderful sense of freshness to it, and it has a very long life in front of it. (SS)
Gramercy’s cabernet program keeps getting more refined and complex, in part because of Greg Harrington’s vineyard sources, Phinny Hill, Bacchus and Octave. The three sites blend into a classic Washington cabernet, a jampot of plum sauce and cherries, that fleshiness framed by tarry, mineral tannins. Impressive and complex, the wine needs time to knit all these disparate elements. For the cellar.
