The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pine Mountain Vineyards is rich, powerful and super-concentrated, with plenty of dark cherry, mocha, chocolate, plum and spice. There is good aromatic intensity, but it is the wine's palate weight and richness that stand out above all else. Proprietor Hien Nguyen and winemaker Thomas Brown are crafting wines of distinction from this high-altitude vineyard in Mendocino County on the Mayacamas mountains.
Harvested from an exclusive block at 2400 ft elevation, this wine exhibits the defining qualities of our high altitude fruit – small clusters, diminutive berries, intense aromas, deep color, and rich complex flavors.
