REASONS 2014 COLUMBIA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Tasting Notes:


Appearance:

clear with dark garnet color

Nose:

dark fruit; black cherry, plum, cassis, and blackberry. With notes of black tea, pipe tobacco, leather, violets, and subtle toasted oak and vanilla

Palate:

Fruit carries through to palate and the moderate-to-moderate plus acidity helps bring the fruit to the forefront. The savory notes are also more prevalent on the mouth with good flavors of tea leaf and black coffee supporting the dark fruit and juiciness.

The mouthfeel is full-bodied and rich with plush tannins supported by the moderate-to-moderate plus acidity.

The finish is long and generous, offering juicy black fruit and roasted coffee
