Product Description

“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard comes from a higher elevation site on Pritchard Hill. This is slightly lower in alcohol at 14.3% and sees 88% new French oak. This is a beauty. Black raspberry, blueberry, white flowers, forest floor, graphite and camphor are all present in the aromatics and flavors of this full-bodied wine that has magnificent fruit purity and an expansive, large-scale mouthfeel, but no heaviness or cloying characteristics. This is a beauty to drink over the next 25 years.” Robert Parker 97 Points

“Pulido-Walker's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard opens with pungent, expressive aromatics. A dark, brooding wine, the Melanson presents a compelling interplay of super-ripe dark fruit and intense mountain tannins. Smoke, savory herbs, graphite, menthol and torrefaction notes from the French oak are some of the signatures. Even with all of its opulence and intensity, the 2014 preserves a great deal of freshness. With time in the glass, redder tonalities of fruit start to emerge.” Vinous 94 Points
