2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Enjoy Aromas of blackberry and vanilla

Aromas of blackberry, vanilla and roasted meat. Flavors of black cherry, chocolate and cedar. Bold, fresh and intense yet approachable now.

2014 was an excellent vintage on Long Island. After the cold winter, bud break came late. June and July were very wet, but the dry prevailed consistently through to harvest. Cool nights alternating with warm days enhanced the color, and allowed for the slow, steady ripening of a bounty of high quality fruit.
