AXR Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 - 750ml
94 Points Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is also an impressively constructed wine, with delicious blackberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with charcoal embers, Christmas fruitcake and forest floor, followed by a richly fruity, full-bodied, opulent, classic 2014 that is sexy, endearing, and already delicious and complex. Drink it over the next 15+ years. Well-known consultant for Alpha Omega and a handful of other wineries, Jean Hoefliger, a protegé of Michel Rolland, is behind these two impressive efforts."
Balanced and elegant wines are the hallmarks of the 2014 vintage, a crop similar to 2012 in terms of the characteristics. The weather was near perfect, and, for the first time, there was no effect of the drought on the vines which by now were accustomed to the dry spring. Harvest began early and by mid-August even the Cabernet Sauvignon had ripened, thus protecting the acidity of the wines.
On the rim: Deep, dark black olive with touches of eggplant and purple velvet
On the nose: Explosions of cedar, blackberries, gingerbread, sage, macerated cherries, licorice, cotton candy with soap from Marseille and potpourri
On the palate: Velvety entrance evolving on a backbone of acidity lingering on granular tannins with touches of cherry pie, cassis, plums, fern and tobacco

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
