2014 Meanmouth Cabernet Sauvignon

100.00

416 Cases

Appellation: Diamond Mountain-Napa Valley

Growing season notes:

The 2014 growing season was a drought year, so the vines had to struggle quite a bit and produced smaller clusters full of flavor. The temperatures were ideal throughout the season and allowed the fruit to ripen perfectly until our harvest on September 8.

 

Winemaking notes:

After we picked, we hand sorted the berries and fermented in a stainless- steel tank.  After primary fermentation, it was barreled down to 50% new French oak barrels and 50% two-year-old French oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation.  It was aged 26 months in barrel   and has since aged 10 months in the bottle prior to release October 2017.

 

Tasting notes:

Our 2014 Diamond Mountain is a gorgeous wine, full of dark berry, cassis, and chocolate with hints of pomegranate and fennel.  Forest floor and minerality are also present in the 2014 Meanmouth, a hallmark of the redwoods present around the vineyard site and the rhyolitic ash in the soils.  While this wine will age beautifully for many years, it is able to be enjoyed now upon decanting.
