2014 Passing Time Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 3L
This monster of a wine, leads with black cassis, dark plum, blackberry, crushed rock, cigar box, and violet aromas. The wine itself is stuffed with concentrated dark fruits, cassis liqueur, toasted vanilla bean, and mineral elements, with an exotic floral hint that lingers on the palate. This is a compelling and powerful wine that will be fun to follow for two decades or more.
97% | Klipsun Cabernet Sauvignon
3% | Bacchus Cabernet Franc
Aged 20 months in 85% new French oak
The Wine Advocate, June 2016
"A sensational-looking barrel sample that tastes like the essence of Red Mountain, the full-bodied, structured 2014 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a savory, mineral-drenched bouquet of red and black currants, chocolate, black cherries and graphite. As is always the case with the top wines from this appellation, this is backwards and reticent, and will reward 4-5 years of cellaring."
