"Smoky, toasty oak is a strong flavor amid more subtle notes of plum and blackberry, with touches of sage and cedar folding together on the finish, which is long, graceful and refined, scoring points for subtlety. Drink now through 2032. 980 cases made.–JL" (WS)

"Deep garnet colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard comes charging out of the gate with amazingly intense roses and lilacs scents over an impressively primary core of blackberries, crushed black currants and black cherries with tantalizing layers of chocolate box, smoked meats and Chinese five spice plus a waft of fragrant earth. The palate is full-bodied, super concentrated and built like a brick house, delivering very firm, grainy tannins with just enough freshness, finishing very long and minerally." (WA)
