Product Description

Since 1981, the Bundschu Family has crafted a limited Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve bottling from the most elegant and expressive barrels of the vintage with the designation Vintage Reserve. To keep things interesting, they change the label every vintage, highlighting inspired artists. This current label series was crafted by Nate Reifke.

The 2014 Vintage Reserve teases the personalities of both its predecessors: the early accessible 2012 and the patience requesting 2013. Big, earthy aromas of dark fruits with savory mountain sage, purple flowers, rich cocoa, warm cedar, and a wet slate minerality envelope the senses, leading to a playfully coy palate where the lush, concentrated texture hints at deep layers yet to be exposed. Very fine tannins balance and frame the richness of the body without detracting from a sensuously long, mocha finish. Decant to enjoy or age for 5-20 years to experience.

Varietal Composition: 77 Cabernet Sauvignon, 14 Cabernet Franc, 6 Petit Verdot, 2 Malbec, 1 Merlot
Appellation: Sonoma Valley AVA
Aging: 20 months, 100 percent French Oak, 65 percent new

93+ Points - Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet in color with a hint of purple, the 2014 Vintage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays a relatively earthy nose with notes of tree bark, black loam and iron ore over a core of blackberry preserves, aged meat and cigar boxes. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, it gives wonderfully ripe tannins and great freshness to frame and lift the generous fruit. It finishes long with plenty of savory/earthy flavors." -LPB, 2/28/17

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 1% Merlot, this is a hearty sanguine red wine, with highlights of eucalyptus, peppercorn and billowy tobacco-laden tannin. Well integrated, it shows plenty of oak and inky concentration." -VB, 2/1/18
