LONG SHADOWS Cabernet Sauvignon 'Feather' 2014

The 2014 Long Shadows 'Feather' is another profound wine from this estate. The wine is made by esteemed Napa Valley winemaker Randy Dunn, who only has this outside project in wine other than his Dunn Vineyards wines. In this Cabernet, Randy Dunn uses the same oak treatment as he does in his Dunn wines, utilizing Vicard oak barrels where it spent 22 months prior to bottling. The Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from The Benches Vineyard, Dionysus Vineyard (72 Block) and Pepper Bridge Vineyard. As it begins to unwind the aromatics of red bell pepper, anise, crème de cassis, violets, black cherries and blackberry preserves all begin to come together. On the palate flavors of black cherry reduction, black olive, mocha and sandalwood all continue to weave their way though the wine. This has an exceedingly long finish that sits alongside moderate tannins. This is dense and polished, showing wonderful poise and minerality considering the vintage.
