2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Eagle Foothills

Single-Vineyard (8 Barrels!) | continued=>

2014 was a wonderful year in the Eagle Foothills, the Snake River Valley, and the Northwest.  Rich and velvet texture, the 2014 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon yielded just 196 cases (8 barrels!) from Eagle Foothills AVA . Since the skin of Cabernet Sauvignon is very rich in tannins, perfect phenolic maturity is essential to reach the high concentrated and smooth tannins we are looking for at 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards.  

Cabernet Sauvignon when ripe, and produced from low yields delivers a complex array of scents, aromas and textures.  A deep, dark colored wine that offer complex scents and concentrated flavors ranging from blackberries, creme de cassis, black cherries, boysenberry, blueberry and chocolate when young, to fragrances of tobacco, truffle, cedar wood, earth, lead pencil and leather when mature.

 This wines continues to gain ground and become more interesting with each passing month. It drinks well now. However, if you can resist, cellar this wine and enjoy 2018 through 2030. Thank You from @3HorseRanch !

VINTAGE 2014: The Eagle Foothills and surrounding Snake River Valley harvest was as close to ideal as it gets. The region enjoyed a nice warm summer with perfect diurnal swings (or night time cooling off temperatures) that allowed for picture perfect ripening conditions for whites and reds. An unusually long growing season started in the early Spring and extended into late Fall. Harvest began in mid-September for whites and ran through the very end of October for red varietals.
