"As traditional as it gets, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was kept in the winery until Patti thought the wine was ready to drink. He's in search of anelegant,classicalandpolishedwine that still keeps the varietal character but does not show the effect of the wood. The color, aromas and flavors are quitedeveloped, nuancedand polished, withcomplexityanddetail.It does have theherbalandspicycharacter of the grape (all the textbook descriptors are there:tobacco, forest floor,somethingherbal)and the warmth of the vintage and the place. It'sharmonious,with moderate alcohol and good freshness.It's just delicious, like a trip to the past. It was bottled in September 2013. 27,000 bottles produced."
"The 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, juicy red that features aromas of dark cherry, black currant, coffee and subtle hints of spice. These flavors are complemented by a touch of spicy oak and emphasized by refined tannins."
