Fresh blackberries, plum skin and fresh juniper berries intermixed with dried strawberry and sandalwood. Swirling brings up ripe black currants, baking spice and crème de cassis. The palate is dense and polished with superfine tannins and great length. It’s mouthwateringly fresh with ripe but restrained fruit and terrific presence.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"Made from 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and the balance Malbec, the 2014 Columbia Valley Red Wine was fermented in a mix of concrete tanks and stainless steel, and aged in 40% new French and American oak. It’s looks to be a well-made, possibly outstanding effort that has lots of jammy dark fruits (cassis and blackberry), dried underbrush and some licorice in a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated package. It should drink nicely right out of the gate. Range: 89-91"

Vinous Antonio Galloni
"Medium red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, violet, smoky oak and a whiff of tomato sauce that quickly blew off. Very rich, thick and savory but shows lovely acidity for the vintage. The blackberry, cassis, black tea, herb and potpourri flavors reveal less of the whiskey lactone quality of previous vintages (some Canton American oak was used in the first vintage, 2012, but not since then). Nicely savory, juicy and penetrating, finishing with plenty of dusty tannins to support aging. This venture established by Napa Valley veteran Dennis Cakebread is a bit less obviously New World in style than his wines under the Cakebread label. Winemaker Aryn Morell has upped the percentage of new French oak to 40%."
