Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage 2014

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  In 2014, though, the size is matched by remarkable purity, balance and even finesse.

On first opening, the wine is dark, deep and intense, with a rich core of blackberry, black currant, and graphite accented by notes of fresh herb, mocha and Aisan spice. On the palate there's plenty of plushness and density to the dark fruit, cocoa, and spice flavors with a beam of graphite/lead pencil running from front to back.  Smooth as silk across your palate until a nicely grippy tannic spine emerges on the blue/black fruit and graphite finish.  With air, the wine broadens, deepens, and turns smooth as slik with a finish that just keeps sailing on and on. A great wine to enjoy now or cellar for 20+ years.
