The 2014 Vintage reminds me of the 2012 with its consisten climate and early harvest. Like 2012, it is a more 'California' style, very pleasurable with the same silkiness. This ripe style, with maybe bigger tannins, makes me think that these wines will age forever. So please, don't rush to drink them!

Wine AdvocateA massive, gorgeously rich and decadent version of this cuvee, the 2014 Estate Cuvee (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah and 15% Petit Verdot) is reminiscent of a 2005 Pomerol with its huge bouquet of cassis, toasted spice, graphite, damp earth and leafy herb aromas and flavors. Thick, full-bodied, unctuous and palate-saturating, yet still with purity and grace, it's an insanely good Bordeaux blend (or close) from Paso Robles that will have two decades of overall longevity.
