2014 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is crimson ruby hue with hot magenta rim with an opaque ruby core. The ripe blackcurrant, black cherry, and blackberry wrapped in hot Ghirardelli chocolate bring undertones and hints of dusty redwood and wet earth lingering on pomegranate, grenadine and caramelized vanilla. The decadent dark fruit and artisan cocoa then yield to a refreshing minerality and bright red fruit linger on a long and velvety finish.
