2014 Apriori Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Napa Valley
Deep ruby in color with a pronounced nose of violets, clove and anise. This expressive wine showcases notes of blackberry, ripe plum, cocoa powder and vanilla. Velvety tannins spread over the palate with rich complexity.
Hand harvested grapes were de-stemmed and sorted. The juice was chilled and allowed to softly ferment over three weeks. The wine was stored on its lees in 70% new French oak barrels for 22 months until bottling. No fining.
92 points - Robert Parker
