The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville), from Bennett Vineyard, is a total knock-out. Graphite, menthol, black fruit, lavender, spice and savory herbs make a strong first impression. This is a classic Coombsville Cabernet built on minerality, energy and cool, soil-driven tension. I would give the 2014 a few years in bottle to soften, but it is quite impressive, even at this early stage. The 2014 is a wine of real depth, gravitas and pedigree. Drink 2018-2026.

The 2014 Malbec, from Stagecoach, is superb. Boisterous, exuberant and flamboyant to the core, the Malbec hits the palate with serious fruit intensity. Scents of rose petal, lavender, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center, with more mineral and savory notes develop with time in the glass. This is an especially opulent style with tons of near and medium term appeal. Drink 2016-2022.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a delicious, juicy wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Black cherry, plum, mocha, cloves, new leather and cedar give the 2014 much of its succulent, inviting personality. This is an especially bold, racy style, but it works.   Drink 2017-2026.

The 2014 Proprietary Red exhibits plenty of chocolate, crème de cassis, soft tannins, low acidity and a dense ruby/purple color in a medium-bodied, elegant, fleshy style.  Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford), from Georges III, is supple, silky and nuanced. This is an especially floral, red-toned Cabernet from Georges III. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and rose petals are some of the signatures. Silky, polished tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. There is a lot to like here. This is one of the most finessed, gracious Cabernets from Georges III that I have tasted in some time. Drink 2018-2024.

Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.

The sensational 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford comes from clone 4 and the old Georges III Vineyard now owned by Beckstoffer. This is a floral, earthy wine with a dense purple color and a big, sweet, complex nose that follows through on the palate with loads of kirsch liqueur, black currants, dusty soil undertones, some cedar wood and spicy oak. Opaque purple, full-bodied, and generously endowed, it can be drunk over the next 15-20 years.

An elegant wine with aromatics of sweet white flowers, this expression of Sauvignon Blanc is powerful, and anything but typical. Barrel fermentation and aging lends a touch of sweetness, textured mouthfeel and a dry finish, while weaving an intricate and seductive blend of herbs, ripe white peach, and a touch of pineapple. Aging for 14 months in 100% French Oak makes this Sauvignon Blanc rich and pleasing to the palate, with a smooth creamy texture balanced with a hint of spice and refreshing acidity.
