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 AdvocateThe entry level cuvee that readers should snag a case of is the 2014 Optimus. Made from 42% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Petit Verdot, it's a supple, seamless and elegant wine that gives a small window into the quality and style from this terrific estate. Its deep purple color is followed by classy notes of black raspberries, spice box, dried flowers and underbrush in a full-bodied, balanced and lengthy package. It lacks the depth and length of the top cuvee here, but it is nevertheless a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
