2014 Cabernet Sauvignon - Boudreaux Cellars
The 2014 Cab is a gorgeous wine produced in a warm year that ended dry and cool. This is probably the largest mouthful of Classic Cab we have ever aged and blended. The cherry bomb / blackberry wild and complicated long smooth tannins are amazing. I just love it. After overnight open decantering this wine is still all there. This tells me we have 20-30 years worth of ageability. Loess Vineyard in particular produces my favorite deep dark flavors. The Weinbau Cab Franc is old and hard to come by. Gamache Vineyard, Bacchus Vineyard, Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills, all historic and extremely well-managed. Windrow is, of course, the oldest Cab planting in the entire Seven Hills / Rocks area. Wallula Vineyard is rapidly becoming known as the second coming of Champoux Vineyard and exhibits remarkably balanced fruit.
