Description

From a single vineyard high in the mountains above Woodside.  This wine is very dark with a traditional cab nose of currants and plum. A very complex wine with plum, cherry and berry fruit. The wine already shows secondary notes of spices and cigar box. This is a big wine with ripe tannins and balanced acidity. It’s all packed in right now and will age beautifully for 15-20 years easily.

This is the last of our 2014’s to release. We’ve always released the Chaine d’Or Cab last as it needs the most time in bottle. This is also our very last Chaine d’Or wine. We were sad to leave the vineyard but so happy to move. We heard that the new caretaker at CdO had a rough 2015 and 2016 with no yield at all in 2015. It was a very difficult but very rewarding vineyard for us. This wine is most similar to the 2009 we think. This will age a long time and one we will be happy to cellar ourselves.
