2014 Langtry Cabernet Sauvignon, Tephra Ridge Vineyard, Lake County
The well drained soils of Tephra Ridge produce concentrated dark fruit flavors. Barrel selected, this is the best of the best Cabernet from the 2014 vintage. It is a deep ruby to purple hue with cherry, clove and smoky oak aromas. On the palate ripe red fruits take center stage accented by leather and cigar notes. Ripe, round tannins neatly tie up the favors on the palate followed by a wonderfully long finish.
