Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The color is an opaque bluish purple, and the wine has an exquisite nose of spring flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, graphite and forest floor. Stunningly rich and built like a skyscraper, but without any sense of heaviness, this is a multi-dimensional, profound example of 2014 and certainly one of the wines of the vintage. Drink it over the next 25 years, and if you have some discipline, push away thoughts of consuming it for at least another 2-3 years.
Makes a persuasive case for size and success, as this is a rich, full-blown effort, with tiers of dark berry, mocha and licorice flavors, framed by cedary oak and finishing with a long, nuanced aftertaste that keeps revealing extra facets. Best from 2020 through 2033. 450 cases made.
