Vintage Notes




“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is rich, racy and seductive, and yet also maintains a very classic, mid-weight sense of structure. The flavors are bright and nicely focused in this nuanced, mid-weight wine. The 2014 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, with the Franc adding quite a bit of brightness and aromatic nuance. This has terrific potential.” – 93+pts, Antonio Galloni, vinous, April 2018



2014 was another classic vintage, despite the third consecutive year of drought. A mild winter and spring triggered early bud break, while much-needed late spring rain alleviated water stress on the vines through summer. Summer temperatures were warm and steady, balanced by particularly cool mornings, which permitted even fruit development. Cooler weather in August further lengthened hang time, resulting in perfectly matured fruit with moderate sugar levels.




Winemaking




The 2014 Annum blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc.



Aging the 2014 sur lies with monthly bâtonnage has coated the tannins and smoothly integrated the wood.  We aged this vintage 24 months in new French oak barrels (Taransaud).  Non-filtered.




Winemaker Notes




The ninth vintage of this blend–it represents our version of a “winemaker’s wine.” Annum is the one red wine we make each year that allows us to select from a range of prestigious vineyards to make the best blend possible that vintage.
