The 2014 Sabina Vineyards St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon is deep dark garnet in color with enticing aromas of black fruits including Damson plum, blackberry, and black raspberry with notes of tobacco, cedar and toast. This is a round, mouth filling wine with concentrated flavors of black currant and plums. An expression of cassis with hints of ginger, spice and cocoa adds complexity and intrigue. The textural aspect of this Cabernet Sauvignon is classic and age-worthy, and the wine possesses a fine texture, moderate tannins, pleasing opulence and a youthful finish. This is a classic from St. Helena that has been revised and updated for the modern palate, yet it shows the refinement and struc-ture that have made such wines famous. While delicious when young, the wine will benefit from additional bottle aging for the next 15 years.
