The Napa Valley has never produced a greater trio of consecutive vintages for Cabernet Sauvignon than 2012, 2013, and 2014. While each year has its own special personality, they all share similar warm dry growing conditions in common that propelled them to greatness. The finest 2014 Cabernets are densely structured wines with beautiful balance and complexity, and we are thrilled to offer you a glimpse of the vintage’s promise with our 2014 Equinox Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot meticulously grown on a gentle sloping bench at the foot of the Mayacamas mountains, the Equinox captures the essence of this stellar vintage and promises many great years of drinking pleasure.
Deep glossy crimson in color, the aromatics develop with aeration to reveal wild blackberry, cassis, and freshly roasted coffee beans. The wine’s rich fruit flavors of spicy black cherry and roasted plum are in fine balance with the burly tannin structure, offering an intense drinking experience today with the promise of greater evolution over time. Nuances of spice, cherry jam, and mint reveal themselves through the savory finish, making this powerful red a joy to drink today.
