2014 Abreu "Cappella" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $370)

SKU #1404469 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Deeper, richer and more powerful, the 2014 Cappella incorporates the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the lineup and is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. It reveals classic minerality and earthiness to go with killer notes of blackberries, toasty oak, licorice, and spice. This seductive, opulent, full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, a deep, layered texture, ripe tannin, perfect balance, and a huge finish. It still plays in the more forward, sexy style of the vintage (it's actually one of the more drinkable releases today, despite having more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend) yet will keep for two to three decades. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Subtle aromas of flowers, currants, dried shiitake mushrooms and perfumes. Full-bodied, yet polished and very refined. Wonderful length and consistency on the refined and polished palate. Chewy yet elegant tannins. Goes on for minutes. Love the balance and length. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (72%), Cab Franc (18%), Petit Verdot (8%) and Merlot (2%). Inner quote mark (5/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cappella Proprietary Red has gregarious scents of blueberry compote, preserved plums and blackberry with a gorgeous exotic spice undercurrent of star anise, cassia and cardamom with wafts of cigar box and smoked meats. The palate is full-bodied, firm and grainy with a gorgeous core of generous black fruit preserves and loads of spicy accents, finishing long and layered. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Cappella is gorgeous. Dark and mysterious in its shading, the 2014 is quite a bit darker and deeper than it usually is, with an almost somber tonality to its fruit and overall feel. Mocha, plum and spice develop in the glass, but the 2014 is really about texture at this stage. I love the breadth and expansiveness here. The 2014 is one of the most alluring Cappella's I can remember tasting. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense, with waves of dark currant, warmed fig and steeped blackberry flavors, inlaid liberally with smoldering charcoal and tobacco notes. Baker's chocolate accents fill in the available space on the finish, lending to the muscular feel while adding detail. This draws deep water. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
