94+ points, The Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville has a vibrant nose of crushed black currants, red plums and red currants with touches of yeast extract, cedar box, pencil lead, dried Mediterranean herbs and beef drippings. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and fully ripe/expressive, with tons of black and red fruit flavor layers and a mineral element supported by fine-grained tannins and harmonious freshness. It finishes with great persistence. This will challenge your preconceptions of Napa Cabernet! Should go on for 25+ years. 500 cases were made.

The 2014 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful expression of Cabernet coming
from this relatively cooler appellation within the Napa Valley. The wine is full of juicy
blackberry and cherry, alongside fresh flavors of currants and cassis, which evolve into
savory notes of cigar leaves and leather. This Cabernet is plush and mouth filling, with
incredible balance and depth. The wine is concentrated and complex with fine tannins
and well integrated oak notes that persist through the tremendously long finish. This is a
Cabernet lovers Cab that will age for a very long time.
