Neal Family 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet shows its mountain heritage with ripe black fruit, deep color and firm structure, accented by the valley floor characteristics of berry fruit and good acidity. Aromas include blackberry, cassis, cherry, vanilla oak and black licorice. The initial mouthfeel is intense but very velvety, with a sweetness provided by the intense fruit contribution. Black cherry fruit, cedar, spice and a hint of leather are carried to the complex finish with a rewarding balance of acid and tannin. Decanting within the first several years of release will significantly enhance the enjoyment of this vintage, as will cellaring for many more years.
