ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2014 Prince of Hearts is fabulous. Soft, open-knit and expressive, the Prince of Hearts is one of the more gracious wines readers will find in this vintage. Expressive floral and red-toned fruit notes give the 2014 its feminine, sensual personality. This is one of the finest Napa Valley wines readers will find in its price range."

ROBERT PARKER 90 POINTS - "One of the stars of Napa Valley, Claude Blankiet's first vintage was 1999. His beautiful hillside vineyard sits on the western slopes of the Yountville AVA, just behind the Napanook estate. Unfortunately, his winemaking consultant, Denis Malbec, was tragically killed earlier this year."

"The 2014 Prince of Hearts (63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a cuvée of 1,450 cases. This is a sort of second wine, soft, lush, and seductive, with plenty of coffee bean, black and red currant, cherry, some background oak, low acidity, and a pleasant, round, juicy, rather classic 2014 personality. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."

Additional Info

Country: United States

American wine has been produced for over 300 years. Today, wine production is undertaken in all fifty states, with California producing 89 percent of all US wine. The United States is the fourth-largest wine producing country in the world after France, Italy, and Spain. With more than 1,100,000 acres (4,500 km2) under vine, the United States is the sixth-most planted country in the world after France, Italy, Spain, China and Turkey.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Canada's Okanagan Valley to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. From France, the grape spread across Europe and to the New World where it found new homes in places like California's Santa Cruz Mountains, Napa Valley, New Zealand's Hawkes Bay, Australia's Margaret River and Coonawarra regions and Chile's Maipo Valley and Colchagua. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the blackcurrant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olives notes while in very hot climates the current flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and "jammy" side.
