Why You'll Love It

The 2014 Clos Pegase Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a truly great vintage. The deep purple hues in the glass compliment the generous expression of cassis, blackcurrents and plums. Sitting behind this fruit lies more oak driven aromas such as expresso beans, crushed vanilla and spice box. On the palate, complex and intense this wine displays complex dark fruit notes of ripe black cherries, plums and blackberries complemented by scents of violets, graphite, black licorice and a touch of cigar box. This rich yet elegantly styled Cabernet Sauvignon deftly balances fleshy mineral-tinged fruit, ripe tannins and a rich full mouthfeel with a prominent mid-palate lift and a lengthy refined finish.

Winemaker Notes

The mild winter combined with substantial rains in February and March gave the vines a vigorous start. The late falling spring rains along with cool temperatures in May meant that fruit-set was reduced, naturally lowering the yield of fruit each vine produced. The weather started to warm up as spring moved into summer, providing our vineyards with the optimal climate to undergo veraison, where upon the grapes skins softened, natural grape acid declined, sugar was generated and the grape skins started to color. As harvest approached, the combination of warm days and cool nights ensured full physiological ripeness of the fruit both in terms of fruit flavor development and tannin maturity together with acidity retention so crucial for fine wine balance; however, because the peak daytime temperatures exceeded those in 2014, this vintage was one of the earliest in over a decade.
