Linked Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
The 2014 growing season was easygoing. Grapevines found their happy place quickly, as warm spring soils brought an early budbreak, and the rest of the season was mild and relaxed, with high temperatures dancing in the mid 80's. The vines and grapes developed smoothly, soaking up the dreamy vacation-like weather. Wine country got a little shaken in late August by an impressive earthquake, but the vineyards only felt a tickle on their roots and harvest proceeded with the same mellow vibe as the rest of the vintage.
The lighter, softer, easygoing 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is pleasant and sexy, with supple tannins and an up-front, delicious, endearing style. Drink it over the next decade.
