Duckhorn 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Score - Wine Review Online - 94 - "Another splendid vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon for Duckhorn is just another day at the office. And it's anything but ho-hum. The 2014 is a richly layered, black-fruited beauty that exhibits impressive depth, intense fruit aroma, and beautifully integrated oak/spice notes. Well balanced and beautifully structured to improve with age, it nevertheless is beautiful to drink now as well." •
Score - Wine Spectator - 92 - "This is marked by a strong herb and oak mixture and framed by a lively burst of red currant, red licorice, dusty, cedary oak and licorice notes. Drink now through 2030."
Duckhorn has been producing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1978. Blending fruit from estate vineyards and top Napa Valley growers, this wine embodies the complexity of the valley, while offering a seamless balance between fruit, oak and tannins. To add nuance the Cabernet is blended with Merlot, yielding a wine that is approachable in its youth, yet worthy of cellaring. 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 100% French oak château-style barrels 50% new for 16 months.
The 2000 is probably one of the last classic vintages in Bordeaux. Not only will they go for ages, but they also need a lot of time to open up.
The 2000 La Mission has been sleeping in my cellar since release. For date night with @carly.pau I thought it to be a good idea to give it a try.
I decanted the wine for around 4 hours and it started to open up. The nose had blackberries, cherries, pencil shavings and some leather.
This is a full bodied powerhouse with some beautiful velvety tannins. Acidity and fruit are already well balanced out
It is such a massive wine, with great concentration that doesn't lack elegance.
At 17 years of age, this is still a youthful wine, that only will hit peak at least in another 10 years. It will rival some of the other iconic vintages of La Mission. This is just short of perfection!
finals week, cramps, stomach flu, food poisoning, and what not, in sum i was not in the best condition, BUT time spent with each one of you girls in this cute little trip made me so so happy. thank u for planning, driving, decorating, feeding, and loving on me, my lovely girlfriends 😘 #sevengirls#hasisters#ha_kimsisters#zits#mrruth
