Decanter Panel Tasting

California Cabernet 2014

Despite an earthquake during harvest, this Cabernet Sauvignon vintage proved to be outstanding, producing beautiful wines with great structure, says Karen MacNeil.

Panel review:

90-94 points, Highly Recommended: A grassy, leafy expression of Cabernet on the nose with smoky hints. Very attractive, with beautiful poise on the savoury palate, while the firm structure suits the fresher register of the aromas.

94 points: Green notes are a key part of Cabernet’s aroma, yet often suppressed in California. How refreshing, then, to find them lifting the juicy fruit of this wine to another level of complexity. Drink 2020-2030.
