The wines from the extremely hot drought year, 2014, were just bottled prior to my visit. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the vintage’s precociousness and front-end loaded, flattering style. It is medium to full-bodied, shows beautiful fruit purity, deep black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, moving toward blacker berries. There is a floral characteristic, spice, and a full-bodied, lush mouthfeel with silky tannin. Drink it over the next 25 years.

Rich start and then extremely, delightfully lively with real life and lift on the palate – despite all that alcohol. Exceptional in this respect, perhaps because of the biodynamic viticulture? Very fine tannins well in retreat.
