2014 Silencieux Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
1,790 Cases Produced
2014 was another blockbuster vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon, on par with that of both the 2012 and 2013 vintages. There are many similarities between these vintages, yet each has its own personality. The overall takeaway is that quality remained superior throughout the three vintage run.
Powerful and full-bodied, opening with scents of sweet cassis, anise, blackberries, roasted coffee, and vanilla. The tannins are firmer up-front than the 2012 and 2013 vintages, with a full mouth-coating lead into a concentrated and lengthy finish. This wine is approachable upon release and cellar-worthy in proper aging conditions. Best now through 2027.
