The 2014 growing season in Sonoma County was long with mild temperatures resulting in very high quality fruit coming into the winery. The 2014 Cinq Cépages captures the highlights of this vintage. The opening bouquet offers layers of aromas including black raspberry, sweet currant, lifted perfumed violet and notes of baking chocolate. Secondary aromas of roasted coffee and nuanced notes of Earl Gray tea and spice add complexity.

The aromas lead to a plush palate with depth of flavors including raspberry compote and dark chocolate. The full-bodied wine is rich and refined with well-integrated, ripe tannins giving good structure. In signature Cinq Cépages form, this wine combines the strength of the diverse Sonoma County region to create an approachable, well-balanced and elegant wine.

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot

Composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, with dollops of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot (hence the name), the 2014 Cinq Cepages Proprietary Red Wine has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of pure, crushed black currants and blackberries plus hints of garrigue, lavender, chocolate box and wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is firmly textured with a solid frame of chewy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92
