2014 Weppler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga

Opaque, deep red color. Aromas of dark chocolate and berry. Intense yet still smooth on the palate. Dark chocolate, blackberry, currant, tobacco. Firm tannins (could use 2 to 3 more years to soften but not a problem at the moment). Becomes plusher with air. Intense dark chocolate on the mid-palate. Great acidity and balance. Finishes long and dark fruited with hints of anise. Great now but should continue to improve for 4 to 5 years and drink well for another 5 years past that. If drinking in the short term, I'd recommend a short decant. "A"
