A classic Stags Leap Cabernet, the 2014 exudes richness, power and depth. Graphite, crème de cassis, lavender, violets, chocolate and sweet spices infuse this beautifully expressive, sculpted Cabernet Sauvignon. Chocolate, inky black fruits and a dollop of new oak add the closing shades of nuance.
Something truly noble and profound can be found, once again, in the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Impassable Mountain. This just has richness beyond belief, and a level of complexity and je ne sais quoi character that is hard to articulate. This is extraordinary winemaking, obviously a great, great terroir, and a historic effort from the folks at Hidden Ridge Vineyard (which as been rebranded as Immortal Estate). I don't think the 2014 will ever achieve the perfection of the 2013, but it will sure be fun to compare them over the next 40-50 years, if any of us live that long.
As for the 2014s, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Slope from the Hidden Ridge vineyard does not suffer in comparison with the extraordinary efforts of 2013. Still a barrel sample, its riveting richness, concentration, texture and density represent another legend in the making. Crème de cassis, licorice, blackberry, earthiness and spice are all present in this magnificent example of Cabernet Sauvignon that should age beautifully for 25-30+ years.
Consistently offering its classic opaque purple color, sweet and supple briary red and black fruits, licorice, crushed rock and forest floor. It is deep, circular, unmatched focused intensity. This wine will continue to evolve for the next 10+ years.
Blended of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Red Blend is scented of black cherries, blackberries and wild blueberries with hints of damp soil, pepper and dried herbs. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated on the earthy/spicy palate and with firm, chewy tannins, it finishes very long.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Regusci Vineyard is a monumental effort that boasts a huge, opulent, incredibly sexy style to go with classic black and blue fruits, incense, spice, and fruitcake aromas and flavors. It has a stacked mid-palate, sweet tannins, and no hard edges, and just delivers the goods. Don’t miss a chance to buy this wine if you find bottles.
The Consortium Cabernet exhibits a dark crimson core with purple and garnet reflections on the rim. Classic Napa Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry liqueur, fresh boysenberry, and black cherry are infused with notes of wet violets, coffee, fresh leather, tobacco, and the ideal touch of high-quality vanilla bean and baking spices. The oak aromas impart just the right nuances and are perfectly integrated and balanced without being overbearing as many Napa examples often are. On the palate, the wine is medium-plus in body and captures pitch-perfect balance with the ideal freshness, soft, silky texture, and integrated, polished tannins that are wrapped around layered flavors of soft black fruit, leather, tobacco, cedar, cocoa, and subtle exotic spices.
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is a total rock star even at this incredibly youthful stage, strutting the stage with flamboyant freshly crushed red and black currants, black cherries, black raspberries and cassis scents with spectacular lilacs and fragrant earth accents plus sparks of cast iron pan, garrigue and grilled meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is charged with amazing energy, packing wonderfully vibrant black fruits, red berries and mineral flavors into a firm, finely grained frame, finishing very long and beautifully lifted.
Deep garnet with a hint of purple, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon springs from the glass with bold plum preserves, warm blackberries and black forest cake with hints of cigar box and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, elegant and with a firm structure, it finishes long and savory. Delicious right now!
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Napa Valley is the appellation blend from the estate, coming from multiple vineyards and brought up in 59% new French oak. It offers a ripe, sexy, incredibly textured style as well as tons of blackcurrants, blackberries, and cassis fruits, full body, tons of sweet fruit, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. It's rich and powerful yet also incredibly pure and graceful.
The 2016 Howell Mountain Estate Red Blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 3% Malbec aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with incredibly fragrant red and black currants, crushed black berries and black cherries notes with hints of cigar box, bay leaves, licorice, oyster sauce, yeast extract and chargrill. The palate is full, super concentrated and built like a brick house, offering very firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and savory. This flat-out beauty should be very long lived!
A different beast, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is more backward and reticent, and while it needs 4-5 years of bottle age, is packed with potential. Both black and blue fruits, earth, tobacco, and freshly crushed rock notes all flow to a full-bodied 2016 that has plenty of fine tannins, remarkable purity of fruit, and beautiful intensity and length. Do your best to give this some bottle age, and you’ll be rewarded with a phenomenal Napa Valley Cabernet that will keep for 2-3 decades.
Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. Cabernet grapes are farmed in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling Caymus to make the best possible wine in a given year.
Pure and rich, well-centered on melted black licorice, spice, cedar and dark berry flavors. Deep and complex, if short on finesse and grace, ending with musclebound tannins.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it has wonderful purity of black fruits—preserved plums, blackcurrants and black raspberries—with nuances of iron ore, crushed rocks, fertile loam, cedar chest and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, concentrated, muscular and built like a brick house, it has very firm, grainy tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing incredibly long and mineral. This should be very, very long lived.
The deep garnet-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Heir Apparent Rutherford slowly unfurls to reveal notions of tar, scorched earth, dusty soil and iron ore over baked plums, mulberries and cassis with touches of sautéed herbs. Full, firm and richly fruited with ripe, grainy tannins, it finishes long and earthy.
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Ridge Vineyard sports a saturated purple color as well as a seriously rich, powerful nose of blackcurrants, incense, chocolate, dried flowers, and sage brush.

It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by fresh acidity and firm, polished tannins.
“The goal for this Cabernet is simple – to make wine that expresses all that Paso has to offer, with its pastoral beauty, perfect soils, maritime climate and limitless possibility.”
THE 2017 VINTAGE OF BARBOUR CABERNET SAUVIGNON IS FULLY RIPE, DISPLAYING PURPLE AND BLUE TONES AND DEEPER NOTES OF MOCHA, BLACK TEA AND GRAPHITE. ITS FULL MOUTHFEEL OFFERS TANNINS THAT ARE PRESENT YET APPROACHABLE, AND THE WINE FINISHES WITH DARK FRUITS DOMINATING THE MID AND UPPER PALATE.
The 2017 Tench Vineyard EE Red Wine checks in as 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot and is one of the few wines that has the potential to match what was achieved in 2016. A total thriller, it has awesome notes of plums, blueberries, earth, chocolate, and espresso, with even a hint of truffle developing with time in the glass. Deep, dense, shockingly powerful and layered, yet still light and balanced on the palate, with sweet tannins, it should drink nicely right out of the gate yet age well.
Named after winemaker Eric Jensen's parents, the 2017 Harvey and Harriet is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers a richer, powerful style as well as Napa Cabernet-like notes of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, crushed rocks, and violets. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and voluptuous on the palate, it's more approachable than the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, but I wouldn't bet against it aging just as long.
Sourced from the very best vineyards within the Carter portfolio of single vineyard sources, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the very best of what Napa Valley has to offer. The various vineyard elements fuse together to create a rich, sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with massive concentration and intensity. On the palate, this is everything you would want in a great Cabernet Sauvignon, including dense flavors of blackberries, graphite and spring flowers framed in well-integrated oak profile. This full-bodied, layered, racy style shows the purity and elegance of the 2017 vintage, not it mention its serious oomph and decadence.
More cassis, violets, and flowers emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Regusci Vineyard, which has a more focused, ageworthy, elegant style. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully textured as well as balanced, it has remarkably polished, sweet tannins, which can be hard to find in the 2017 vintage. Drink it any time over the coming 15 years or so.
The grand vin is the 2017 Dominus, which is based on 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, harvested between September 21 and October 3, and aged in 40% new French oak. Chateau Lafite-like notes of blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, cedary tobacco, and gravelly earth all emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, has a terrific sense of elegance, lots of tannins, and a great finish. This tight, powerful, concentrated Dominus will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 25 years or more. 2017 doesn't get much better.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot aged 22 months in 75% new French oak.

Up with the top wines in the vintage, it has incredible purity, full body, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This brilliant 2017 is going to keep for 20-25 years or more.
There’s a ripe herb/herbal edge in the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Tournahu Vineyard, which comes from a vineyard on the valley floor located on an old riverbed. Lots of black fruits, salted meats, and cured black olives define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and structured on the palate. It’s a serious wine that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20.
Tench Vineyard's signature characteristics shine in this Russell Bevan Made 2017 Perus Armaan.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard has a vibrant deep garnet-purple color and prances out of the glass with vivacious black cherries, wild blueberries and blackcurrants scents plus suggestions of violets, bay leaves, tilled earth and black tea.

Celia Welch once again delivers a densely packed wine with seductive aromas of raspberry jam, blackberry, brambleberry, cocoa, cedar, anise and mint tea. On entry, the wine is ripe and expansive and continues this way through to the finish. It is dense and highly concentrated with a finish of fresh, juicy fruit notes. The tannins are present and approachable.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2017 M. Étain is deep garnet-purple colored and prances out of the glass with exuberant baked cherries, warm mulberries, plum pudding and crème de cassis notes with touches of Provence herbs, tilled soil and pencil lead plus wafts of spice box and potpourri. Full-bodied, firm and earthy in the mouth, the palate has bags of freshness and a firm structure with loads of spicy nuances on the finish.
Finely aged in a mix of new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels. It’s a deep, rich, serious wine that has a huge nose of black, black fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, and chocolate. It doesn’t pull any punches on the palate either and is full-bodied, deep, dense, and straight-up bad ass. It’s an awesome wine in the making, but as with a few of these other 2017s, short-term cellaring is going to be the name of the game.
A dense, darkly fruited Cabernet Sauvignon that proves nearly impenetrable by light. Predominantly grown in the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley that rise above Rutherford, no sip of this wine comes up short on swagger. The wine’s brawny structure effortlessly carries the massive, saturated palate of deep, black fruits and pine-forest accents, barely revealing itself while travelling across the palate. Provide this wine a healthy decant in its youth, before diving into its endlessly deep waters.
Benoit's unrivaled work ethic and tenacity continues to show in every new vintage!
Another terrific value, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% each Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. Production is way down due to the fires, but it's a smoking wine with its bright, juicy blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with plenty of graphite and toasted spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and sweetly fruited, it has ripe tannins and is well worth seeking out.
Deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notes of baked plums, black currant pastilles and dried blueberries with hints of fried herbs, cigar box and fruitcake. Full-bodied, the palate is just slightly hollow with chewy tannins and oodles of freshness pleasantly lifting the berry preserves flavors on the finish.
Starting with the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc), it has a vibrant purple color as well as a great nose of red, blue, and black fruits intermixed with lots of spice, spring flowers, chocolate, and forest floor. It's not a blockbuster, but it’s just seamless, gorgeously textured, and a stunning value.
Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon springs from the glass with lifted crème de cassis, violets and chocolate box notes plus hints of lilacs, raspberry leaves, anise and cardamom. The perfumed black fruit preserves and chocolate-laced notes completely pack the full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and very spicy. Definitely one for hedonists seeking immediate gratification.
Pure crème de cassis, white flowers, crushed violets, and graphite notes all emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard, which comes from a large valley floor vineyard in Rutherford. It’s a more structured, full-bodied, beautifully layered 2018 that has building tannins as well as remarkable purity.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate saunters out of the glass with a seriously sexy nose of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries, kirsch and black cherries with touches of fragrant soil, cassis, tobacco leaf, candied violets and espresso. Medium to full-bodied, the palate positively quivers with an electric intensity of tightly wound black and red berry layers, framed by very firm, fine-grained tannins and delivering bags of freshness and perfume on the very long finish.
