Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=94) Aromas of berries, stones, and light coffee follow through to a medium to full body, integrated tannins, and chocolate, walnut, and berry aftertaste. Linear and focused. Nice tension. Better than 2013. Drink or hold.
(RP=89) A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot from Napa, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon If Six Was Nine, has a dense ruby/purple color, attractive cassis fruit, medium to full body, good ripeness and richness, and a soft, fleshy finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
