2014 Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon
This fabulous wine has a sweet hedonistic entry with aromas of jammy blackberry, currant and toasty blueberry. Lilacs, rosemary and thyme spices are also evident on the nose. Flavors include ripe berries along with black pepper, bacon, flint, citrus peel and cocoa powder. There is a wonderful combination of soft tannins and mouth-watering acidity that provides great early structure. A very long, ripe finish adds to the pleasure.

"Another Pauillac look alike is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Shaw Red Mountain Vineyard, which comes from a single parcel of steep, rock slopes in the northwest section of Red Mountain. It offers classic notes of black currants, dark chocolate, scorched earth and smoke tobacco. With full-bodied richness, a stacked mid-palate and present yet sweet tannin, this sensational Cabernet from Washington State will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring, and it will keep for two to three decades."
