2014 Four Flags Cabernet

Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2014 Four Flags Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, violets and Herbs de Provence. This wine screams of Red Mountain’s terroir with its combination of great structure and ripeness.  On the palate, Four Flags is focused and savory with ripe, firm tannins. This vintage shows notes of fresh plums, currants and blueberries along with cardamom, fennel seed and a touch of flint.

Much less tannic from bottle than from barrel, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags comes from four different vineyards on Red Mountain: Grand Ciel (42%), Upchurch (31%), Ciel du Cheval (19%) and Klipsun (8%). It shows the vintage’s more forward, charming style with its full-bodied, rich, textured style, yet it firms up considerably on the finish. Possessing lots of graphite, toasted spice, currants and black raspberry aromatics, I love its purity and balance. It’s best today with a decant, but it should be in its finest from 2020-2034.

Pairing Suggestion

Beef Bourguignon — We recommend pairing Four Flags with Beef Short Ribs, Venison Cheeks, Lamb Shanks, Burgers, or Earthy Vegetables. Tannin levels are high in this Cabernet Sauvignon, a trait typical of Red Mountain wine, pairing particularly well with nutty cheeses and oily fats.
