2014 Acumen Peak, Edcora Cabernet Sauvignon
96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 1%Cabernet Franc; 99 cases produced.
With a warm, southwest exposure and deep red, iron-rich soils, our 84 acre Edcora Vineyard provides a powerful backbone to our Estate. This prominent vineyard expresses itself in opulent mountain flavors framed by a strong, age- worthy structure.
The 2014 vintage opens with a bouquet of red flowers, hazelnut coffee, sweet hay, and the eucalyptus trees that dot the hillsides around the Estate. On the palate we find aromas and flavors of Luxardo cherries, mint chocolate, oranges, and mountain blueberries. The firmstructure and mouth-coating tannins display the warm, sun- drenched exposure of the vineyard and combine with arich freshness and aromas of tobacco, saddle leather, and granite that continue to evolve through the long, and well- framed finish.
With all the power and structure found in the 2014PEAK Edcora Vineyard, we feel this vintage will continue to develop and add an elegant bottle bouquet over the next 15 to 20+ years in your cellar.
