The 2014 Post Parade presents itself as a hypothetical blend of the best attributes of the 2012 & 2013 releases. The generous fruit, reminiscent of the 2012, is immediately apparent upon pulling the cork. Right below the initial fruit lies the density and fine tannin structure that those who have tried the 2013 would immediately recognize. If drinking in the near term, a healthy decanting would be in order. If cellaring, 2-3 years would be ideal before cracking that first bottle.

Wine AdvocateFor a wine of this quality, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Post Parade is a fabulous bargain by Napa Valley standards. There are 430 cases of this wine, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 90% new French oak (50% of which was Taransaud and 40% Ermitage). Coming from the Tench Vineyard, an Oakville vineyard made famous by Russell Bevan, this wine has an opaque purple color and a glorious nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with charcoal, camphor, a touch of toast and plenty of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. It is full-bodied and displays terrific intensity and purity as well as velvety tannins. This heady, multi-layered wine is already drinking beautifully but should continue to do so for another 15+ years
