2014 Sorada Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Sorada Cabernet Sauvignon



Napa Valley, California

There are few wines of the caliber as this. Rich, powerful, and juicy Napa Cabernet with a big tannic kick and tons of structure to go along with it…this is love at first sight. The deepest glossiest purple you can imagine, like liquid obsidian. The nose is an eruption of mulberry and caramelized blueberry, with notes of coffee, pencil shavings, and spice. The palate is massive – huge! – and jam-packed with roasted blackberry and dark chocolate flavors.  The 3% Merlot in the final blend softens up the finish just a touch to give the big burly tannin a touch of velvet.  You can drink it right now, but will be well rewarded for a few patient hours of decanting. This is a wine for the ages.

Product Description

Napa Valley’s extraordinary 2014 harvest has granted us the opportunity to once again produce our most re-requested and popular domestic wine – the Sorada Cabernet Sauvignon. After a third consecutive year of drought for Napa Valley and most of California, the vineyard conditions were ideal to have the necessary concentration, complexity, and structure for this wine to bear the Sorada name. Always sourced from our favorite hillside vineyards, the 2014 is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon with only 3% Merlot, all from hillside parcels within the Saint Helena AVA.

Deep glossy purple in color, the nose is a bold expression of mulberry and carmelized blueberry kissed with nuances of pencil shavings and earth. The massive palate boasts dense flavors of blackberry jam and dark chocolate, leading to a bold tannic finish softened by 3% Merlot in the final blend. Approachable today and best after several hours of air, our past vintages are evidence the Sorada should evolve beautifully over the next 15 years.
