SKU: 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch

Our ambassador wine, “The Ranch” is an approachable, richly perfumed, terroir-driven Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  Produced entirely from grapes grown on our property, the 2014 shows distinct Cabernet Sauvignon character, knitted with suppleness from the Merlot, structure and elegance from the Cabernet Franc, and aromatics, spice, color, and finesse from the always-influential Petit Verdot.  76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot; 1891 cases made.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
A bit shyer than years past, the 2014 Ranch has a bouquet of pencil lead and steel, red fruit, marzipan, blackberries and cracked black pepper. Red fruit and anise persist on the palate with vigorous tannins and bright acidity -- enjoy immediately and for the next decade.
