Following on the heels of an impressive 2013 vintage, the Gemstone Vineyard 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from six blocks of the vineyard “…where our rarest clones are planted.” The berries from those vines are small and concentrated, producing create a powerful and dark ruby wine that exhibits a ‘Left Bank’ Bordeaux style with remarkable balance, backbone and complexity.

Winery Notes:  “The Gemstone Vineyard Estate Cabernet showcases a deep purple hue with a garnet rim. Rich aromas of black cherry, plum, cassis, spearmint, and eucalyptus jump from the glass. On the palate, intricate flavors of dark cocoa, blueberries, spice and crushed rock are present in this textured, opulent wine. The mouthfeel is polished and full-bodied, exhibiting sweet tannins that provide purity, density, structure and a persistent finish. Expect this Estate Cabernet to evolve gracefully for 20+ years.”

Robert Parker 96 Points: “Even better is the spectacular 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 20 months in 80% new French oak, this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, but is a smaller cuvée of only 524 cases. The wine has plenty of cedary, Christmas fruitcake notes intermixed with licorice, blackcurrants, dusty/earthy undertones and a touch of background smoke and oak. Its tannins are soft, the acidity low and the wine round, concentrated and compelling. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.”
