Elizabeth Spencer Winery

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

A wine with tremendous concentration and intensity of flavors. Beginning with fresh blackberries, plum, violets, and cassis on the nose with a hint of leather, flint, and cinnamon. The palate is filled with brighter and fresher, red and blackberries, crushed raspberries, figs, dates, and chocolate, lifted with a bright acidity and lengthened with mouth-filling tannins.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is selected from a representative array of vineyards located within the Napa Valley’s finest appellations. We are privileged to work with exceptional growers with premier vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, Oak Knoll, Calistoga, Coombsville, Atlas Peak, and Mount Veeder. This diverse assortment of vineyards allows us to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon which is truly representative of Napa Valley.
Production Notes
Upon arrival at the winery, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were hand-sorted. The berries were lightly macerated and then given a long, cold soak in order to extract color and flavor from the skins. Fermentation was allowed to begin with “native” yeasts. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was further macerated on the skins to increase color and flavor extraction. This also allowed the tannin structure to soften. The wine was aged for 24 months in a selection of 60-gallon French oak barrels. Underscoring our winemaking philosophy of “minimal intervention”, the wine was handled as little as possible from fermentation through barrel aging and then bottled unfiltered and unfined.
