Dense purple black, with a violet rim, the aroma of huckleberry and black cherry burst from the nose. Black cherry and fig move from the front palate to chocolate, blueberries and ripe red cherries in the mid-palate. As with all Arkenstone wines, this NVD is elegant and well balanced and the long finish leaves you with rich mocha, ripe blackberry and opulent crème brulée. Approachable now, it will lay down for years to come.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon NVD is essentially from the same sources, but slightly higher production. I preferred, marginally, the 2013 because of its voluptuous texture, velvety tannins, front-end loaded, juicy blackcurrant, blackberry fruit, plushness and impressive purity and length. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
