Revana Revana Terroir 14 cab 750 2014
Initial impressions give notes of eucalyptus and floral components, reminiscent of lilac and rose hips. Hints of black olive and deep plum round out the bouquet.
The generous mouthfeel on the palate reveals deep blue fruit and toasted brioche, giving way to layers of toffee, baking chocolate and clove accenting the lush, lingering finish.
Wine SpectatorPure, rich, dense and driven by extracted blackberry, boysenberry, licorice, currant, cedar and cigar box nuances. Most impressive for the direct and authoritative presence. Best from 2020 through 2038.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Terroir Series is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. A well-made wine with a dense ruby/plum/purple color, attractive loamy soil undertones with hints of underbrush, forest floor, lots of blackcurrants and a whiff of chocolate, the complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with a velvety texture, a lovely, lush mouthfeel, and beautiful purity and elegance. It should drink well for another 10-15 years. It is somewhat understated but certainly delivers immense pleasure and satisfaction.
