One bottle each 2014 D2 and 2014 Doyenne
The 2014 D2 has a notable dark ruby color with magenta edges. There is a proliferation of red and black fruits on the nose and palate, including blackberries, cranberries, raspberries, pomegranates, black cherries and marionberries. Wrapped around these fruit characters is a presence of mint chocolate, black olive, cedar, toasty oak and vanilla. With bright acidity and good structure, this wine is extremely well built and offers a dollop of red fruit flavors in its lengthy finish.
The 2014 Doyenne, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, exhibits deep purple and violet hues. There is great up-front hedonism in this year’s blend, which is dominated by blackberry, cassis, black cherry, lavender and sous bois (forest floor) notes. Right now the Syrah is dominating the flavors with black fruits, black pepper, bacon, tapenade, grenadine, malted chocolate and worn leather. This vintage produced a remarkable and seamless blend of these two noble grapes.
