LA CHANTERELLE Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Sourced from the Riverbend Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, this underwent 100% whole cluster fermentation. The wine was aged 20 months in near neutral oak prior to bottling in May 2016. The wine begins with dense aromatics of black cherry, cassis, anise, black raspberry and hints of leather. The palate is viscous, showing off the warmth of the vintage. There are rich flavors of anise, creme de cassis, coffee grounds and suggestions of leather. There is a gorgeous plush texture and rich mouthfeel that head winemaker Donatus Pocus employs here. This is an impressive follow up to their excellent 2013 Cabernet. Enjoy this while you can, as there are only two barrels made of this excellent Cabernet. (Best 2016-2026) - October, 2016 (OB)
