Appearance: Saturated garnet in color. Bouquet: The aromatics of this wine point to freshly baked blackberry pie, plum preserves, toasted rye bread and slate. Palate: Voluptuous and full-bodied, this second release of Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon is built around tannins wrapped in a blanket of glycerin- notably marked with the essences of cassis, graphite, scorched earth, and dark chocolate. Loaded with black and blue fruits, this wine combines finesse and power that swells across the palate in impressive fashion. It is a remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon that should evolve gracefully for 25+ years.

A deep, velvety purple color in the glass, this bottling by proprietor Roger Bower and winemaker Adam Henkel shows dark-chocolate-covered black cherries, fresh blackberry, white pepper, violet oil, port reduction sauce and spice sake on the lavish nose. Firm tannins frame the palate, which carries black currant and roasted lean beef flavors through soy and pepper sauce into a finish of caramel and espresso grinds.

Rich and powerfully spiced, featuring finely textured dark plum, currant and dark cherry flavors that are quite creamy. Medium-grained tannins show on the finish, with plenty of chocolate and allspice accents. Drink now through 2024. 180 cases made.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers notes of crushed blackberries, cassis and wild blueberries with hints of espresso, bay leaves, black soil and pencil shavings. The palate is a stark contrast from the previous vintage, showing off a very big, rich, full-bodied character, with velvety tannins and plenty of freshness. This is a blockbuster of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the volume turned way up!
