On Q 2014 "Appassionata" Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2014 On Q Appassionata Cabernet is dense, dark and inky blue/purple in the glass. Dark fresh fruit, with huckleberry, blackberry, plum, red cherry and violet lead the charge out of the glass. As it slowly uncoils, subtle notes of cocoa nib, star anise, fennel bulb, and graphite - finishing with lingering hints of baking spices such as coriander, cinnamon and vanilla inter-mixed which chocolate and espresso stemming from the well-integrated French oak barrels where it underwent extended elevage for 28 months. As the second, third and fourth wave of flavors burst forth on your palate, you begin to comprehend how the fragrant bouquet and palate are working together to create a memorable tasting experience. Extremely approachable for a young wine, polished tannins, as well as seductively promising complexities yet to come, the structure is intertwined with tart acidity induced by long hang-time from the cools hills of Coombsville. Drinkable now but will benefit with more bottle aging and should drink well for 20-25 years
