Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 2809


When planting our estate vineyard in 1999, the slope and remoteness of the site proved challenging work. More than fifteen years later we are gratified by and very proud of the superior Cabernet produced from Cloudy's Vineyard. The higher elevation, excellent drainage, and slightly cooler morning temperatures imbue the fruit with distinctly mountain characteristics.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample to be bottled in January 2018, the 2015 Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon features a very deep purple-black nose and scents of spicy blackberry preserves, dried mulberries and kirsch with hints of sautéed herbs and mocha. Very big, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it has a firm yet velvety frame of tannins with a lively lift on the very long finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis remarkable wine offers soft luxury between its balance of fresh red cherry and cassis and the velvety grip of tannic concentration. Spiky persistent acidity guides a freshness of forest floor, sage and tobacco, the power entirely graceful in the glass.
