2014 Guenoc Cabernet Sauvignon, Lake County AVA
The 2014 growing season was consistent and long overall. Warm summer temperatures during the day kept the acids high while still bringing the fruit to optimal maturity. On the nose, this wine is fruit forward with dark cherry, spicy white pepper and oak notes, with hints of lavender and vanilla. The concentrated fruit flavors continue on the palate with flavors of cherry and blackberry jam, white pepper, integrated firm tannins and a long supple finish with touches of leather.
