Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cappella Proprietary Red has gregarious scents of blueberry compote, preserved plums and blackberry with a gorgeous exotic spice undercurrent of star anise, cassia and cardamom with wafts of cigar box and smoked meats. The palate is full-bodied, firm and grainy with a gorgeous core of generous black fruit preserves and loads of spicy accents, finishing long and layered.
Subtle aromas of flowers, currants, dried shiitake mushrooms and perfumes. Full-bodied, yet polished and very refined. Wonderful length and consistency on the refined and polished palate. Chewy yet elegant tannins. Goes on for minutes. Love the balance and length. Drink in 2020. Blend of cabernet sauvignon (72%), cab franc (18%), petit verdot (8%) and merlot (2%).
Deeper, richer and more powerful, the 2014 Cappella incorporates the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the lineup and is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. It reveals classic minerality and earthiness to go with killer notes of blackberries, toasty oak, licorice, and spice. This seductive, opulent, full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, a deep, layered texture, ripe tannin, perfect balance, and a huge finish. It still plays in the more forward, sexy style of the vintage (it's actually one of the more drinkable releases today, despite having more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend) yet will keep for two to three decades.
