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.
