"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Laureate is super-impressive. Beautifully layered in the glass, the Laureate is remarkably vivid for such a big wine. Burnt embers, graphite, kirsch and plum are some of the many notes that imbue this inky, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 is explosive, deep and utterly compelling. A huge, mineral-drenched finish rounds things out in style. "

"...has a beautiful, deep, concentrated mouthfeel with dense crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, spice and floral notes. This is serious wine and full-bodied that keeps everything in balance and requires coaxing to appreciate its full potential and upside. This wine would be better in 4-5 years and probably last 20."
