Ratings and Tasting Notes:(RP=94) One of the finest examples of this cuvee to date, the opulent, sumptuous and downright sexy 2014 Cvr Columbia Valley Red Wine gives up loads of black currants, kirsch, licorice, toasted spice and dried herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, gorgeously textured, round, and just about as hedonistic as it gets, yet without being over the top or heavy in the least, drink it anytime over the coming decade. (AG=91) Healthy red-ruby. Extravagant perfume of boysenberry, cassis, licorice and spices. Very ripe and plush, but with enough energy to maintain shape to its flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and spicy oak. Offers strong raw material for this bottling, which is actually a ""de-selection"" of the estate's tanks with the addition of some press wine. (And it's entirely from estate fruit for the first time.) Finishes with smooth, ripe tannins. My favorite CVR to date.
