Red Stitch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
A blend of three Cabernet vineyards in Coombsville, the cool southern area of Napa, plus a touch of Malbec, this is a dense wine, chewy and opaque. It’s fragrant, highly expressive and savory on the nose: pungent cured olives; bay leaf. Despite its considerable size, it’s highly structured, with tannins and acid that have years of mellowing ahead of them, framing a core of brooding black fruit that hasn’t quite yet emerged in full force. A ripe, generous wine fit for a steak.
Wine SpectatorOpenly complex and charming, from the initial burst of zesty black cherry and raspberry flavors to the shades of loamy earth, gravel and cedar. Never loses sight of the fruit purity. Drink now through 2030. 250 cases made.
