In the glass the wine is translucent purple. Opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis and crushed petals. Notably plush tannins and natural acidity are coupled with a distinct minerality from the volcanic soils. Considerable depth and fruit will continue to develop as the structure starts to integrate with bottle age and bring tremendous purity and allure.

From above the Dalla Valle vineyard in Oakville emerges the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Weitz Vineyard (160 cases). This is a 25-year wine for sure and a rather classic Oakville, with notes of Pauillac-like cedariness, Christmas fruitcake, crème de cassis, licorice and pen ink. It is full-bodied, dense, moderately tannic and for 2014 probably better in 2-3 years time, although certainly has the depth and richness and overall equilibrium to age for 20-25 years.
