2014 White Rock Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $65)

SKU #1397802 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful nose of cassis and blackberry, good clean spiciness from the oak and is medium to full-bodied. This wine can be approached now, but should be even better in several years and last for 15-20 or more. The wines from White Rock are refined and restrained, but always flavorful and promising. This always seems to me to be an under-the-radar wine producer. The wines are consistently excellent. The White Rock Vineyards are at Napa’s southern end, adjacent to the Stags Leap AVA.

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of blueberry and boysenberry character. Hints of wet earth. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Pretty fruit to this with just the right amount of austerity on the finish. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark White Rock Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon bottling is made entirely from this varietal. The 2014 vintage comes in at 14.7% and was aged in 35% new oak. The wine delivers a ripe and deep nose of black cherries, Cuban cigars, allspice, a bit of chocolate, spicy new oak and lovely notes of mint in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and nicely polished on the attack, with a good core of fruit, ripe tannins and fine length and grip on the slightly warm finish. This wine carries its octane quite well and I think it will age gracefully. Give it some time in the cellar to blossom, as there are good things promised on the nose and I imagine the palate is going to deliver on that promise with sufficient bottle age. (Drink between 2024-2050) 90+ Inner quote mark (7/2018)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark White Rock's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific introduction to the house style. Black cherry, plum, graphite, smoke, leather and licorice endow this masculine, virile Cabernet Sauvignon with considerable personality. I would prefer to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years and drink it to age 20, perhaps beyond. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
