“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Exzellenz has an almost moonless night, blue/black color that is opaque to the rim and stunningly sweet tannins that seem to be missing because of their velvety character and beautiful integration. The wine is full-bodied, multilayered and a stunning tour de force for the vintage. This should turn out to be one of the superstars of 2014.”

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Exzellenz radiates vitality. Deep, nuanced aromas of briar fruit laced with tilled earth and smoldering charcoal come alive on the nose. Blackberry and black plum flavors shine through on the palate, along with notes of dusty stone and toasted spice. The ripe, tightly knit tannins provide elegant structure that carries through to a finish of decadent purity.

Wine Facts

The drought conditions helped contribute to an unusually early harvest in 2014. Substantial rain in early spring provided the vines enough hydration to sustain an otherwise dry summer. The entire season was early, from budbreak, to veraison, to harvest. Summer weather was perfect for the grapes, with no extremes or surprises. Fruit quality was exceptional, intensely aromatic and showcased great fruit character.
