Very perfumed and bright with blueberry, violet and dark fruit. Lavender. Full body, linear with more tannic traction. Edgy. Bright finish. Some hot stones. Drink now.
Kata's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard is gorgeous. Medium in body and gracious, the 2014 has it all going on. Red berry fruit, rose petal and mint are all beautifully delineated throughout. The flavors are bright, precise and beautifully lifted in this striking, impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 is just as impressive as it was last year. (AG)
Made from 80% Cabernet and 20% Petite Sirah, there’s even less of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard (16 barrels) than the 2013 and it too is inky purple in color (no doubt from the high percentage of Petite Sirah) and a concentrated, seamless beauty. Toasted bread, spices, cassis and hints of graphite all emerge from this lively, plump 2014 that’s much more open and ready to go than the more reserved, classically styled 2013. Nevertheless, I love its mid-palate, it has plenty of tannin, and I suspect will evolve gracefully given its overall balance and harmony. It too is a smokin’ effort to drink over the coming 15-20 years.
Pure and supple, with a delicate weight and mouthfeel to the dark berry, gravel and spicy earth notes. Ends clean and refreshing, maintaining a graceful style. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 400 cases made. (JL)
