Stack House 2014
Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
This 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is an elegant sleeper selection and a terrific value from Napa Valley. This blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot was aged in two-thirds new French oak for almost two years prior to bottling. Finesse style black and red currants compete with some tobacco leaf and loamy soil undertones in a medium-bodied, deliciously fruity, sexy style that offers immediate drinkability and can actually age decently for up to 7-8 years.

The 2014 Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with aromas of blackberry, cherry, black currant and raspberry liqueur. Layers of crushed rock, spice and toasty oak compliment the fruit driven core. This wine is a great example of the 2014 vintage, showcasing phenomenal power and strength yet revealing a seductive richness and supple texture all in one glass. The Stack House Cabernet coats the palate with plush tannins, sweet French oak, hints of vanillin and an enduring finish.
