2014 Chocolate Covered Meanmouth Cabernet Sauvignon


Very Limited Production

Diamond Mountain, Napa Valley

The 2014 Meanmouth Cabernet is the first produced from the vineyard property that we now call home.

Growing season notes:
The 2014 growing season was a drought year, so the vines had to struggle quite a bit and produced smaller clusters and berries, 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 for 26 months in barrel and has since aged 10 months in 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.
