2014 Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon
RED MOUNTAIN AVA
The 2014 Grand Ciel Cabernet offers impeccable balance, emphasizing the focus and elegance of our estate vineyard. The power and structure of Red Mountain is showcased in the aromas of blue and black fruits with dried earth, Herbes de Provence and subtle rose petal notes. The wine is forward and powerfully dense in the mouth, while remaining remarkably supple. Cassis, anise, pomegranate and marmalade flavors give way to integrated eucalyptus and sous bois (forest floor) nuances from the cooperage. A long finish promises exceptional cellaring time.
