Our latest vintage of Janzen Napa Valley Cabernet unites the unique mountain character of our estate fruit with the finesse offered by Cabernet from Rutherford and Oakville. 2014 was an excellent vintage for Cabernet in Napa. With youthful vigor and balanced tannins, this wine is approachable now yet has the backbone to lay down for many years to come.
Wine Enthusiast, January 15, 2017
Peppery and meaty, this 100% varietal wine is sourced from select estates around the valley. With lively acidity beneath its rich, ripe blackberry and cassis flavors, it shows sturdy tannin and a mild finish.
Wine Advocate, October, 2017
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Janzen Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 22 months in French oak, 60% new, and delivers intense notes of crushed plums, black cherries and mulberries plus notions of cedar chest, dried Provence herbs, underbrush and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives a very refreshing acid line, lifting the youthful black fruit, finishing long and chewy.
