2017 Winemaker's Challenge

  • Refined and elegant, our Cabernet displays characteristics of ripe, dark fruit, cinnamon stick, vanilla, and smoky woods.
  • Steady, moderate temperatures allowed for optimal balance and a complex layer of flavors.

Despite the ongoing drought in California, 2014 was an outstanding vintage that produced extremely high quality grapes. Warm, dry conditions throughout spring and summer, helped reduce yields. From this climate we harvested smaller than normal berries that were richly concentrated. Our 2014 Newman Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon boasts impeccable structure and great fruit extraction. Aromas of wild berries, juniper, and baking spices transition to high volume flavors of cherries and cassis interwoven with earthy elements like espresso beans, toasted wood, forest floor and dried flowers. It’s
dark, dense, and seriously delicious.
