Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

92 pts Vinous
Glass-staining ruby. Ripe, spice-accented cherry, blackberry, incense and a touch of cigar box on the highly perfumed nose. Sweet, expansive red and dark fruit flavors show a hint of candied licorice, and a smoky mineral quality adds energetic lift and focus. Rich yet lively, with no rough edges. The very long, sweet finish is framed by slow-building, silky tannins. — Josh Raynolds

91+ pts Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a spicy, cinnamon stick and incense scented nose over a core of crushed blackberries, blueberries and plums with cigar boxes and bay leaves going on in the background. Medium-bodied with commendable elegance and sophistication, there’s a good mid-palate here of ripe fruit and firm, grainy tannins leading into a long earth and spice laced finish.

Winemaker Notes:

Harvest Date: 24/03/2014 / Sub-Region:Wilyabrup / Harvest Method: Machine Harvest Analysis: / 14.6 Baume / 3.66pH / 5.8g/L

Machine Harvested fruit is delivered to the winery where it is crushed and destemmed to a fermenter. Selected yeast is added and a controlled fermentation is conducted over a 14 day period. During fermentation the wine is pumped over the skins twice a day to facilitate color and tannin extraction. A period of post fermentation maceration on-skins has been employed for this batch to further ameliorate and soften the tannin profile of this wine. Following fermentation and extended skin contact the wine is matured in 45% new and 55% one year old French oak barriques. After maturation the wine is assembled before a light egg fining and filtration prior to bottling.
