UPCHURCH VINEYARD Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The 2014 Upchurch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive showing in this vintage.  Winemaker Chris Upchurch, has blended in 9% Merlot to his Cabernet Sauvignon and has aged the wine in new French oak (Taransaud & Orion). Chris has mostly used Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 2, which he feels adds to the floral aspect of the wine. The new oak influence is quite minimal at this juncture, as this is currently displaying pretty aromatics of red currant, fresh rose petals, black cherry, black olive and sagebrush influences. The mid-palate minerality and structure is impressive. There are ripe flavors of sweet tobacco, red cherry, red raspberry, sagebrush and wild blackberry pie, which remain persistent untill the very end. It would be best to allow this beautiful Cabernet another year to settle in, and for the fruit to further integrate. (Best 2018-2033) - March, 2017 (OB)
