NEWTON YOUNTVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

The vineyard was established in 1973 on the lower slopes and foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains directly above the town of Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley region. This celebrated site is unique in the combination of alluvial valley floor and rocky foothills with a predominantly eastern aspect at between 150-350 feet in altitude. The principle moderating influence on the local climate is the heavy fogs that linger until late in the morning providing a cooling influence as it flows south down the valley to the San Pablo Bay. The wines represent classical Napa Cabernet with rich bold and round flavors, dark chocolate and a silky rich mouth filling structure.

Vintage Conditions
The drought that has impacted much of California from 2012 continued to keep rainfall levels below 50% of average and maintained growing season heat summation above average for the harvest. The warm and dry conditions promoted excellent quality and when combined with above average yields the potential of the 2014 vintage is outstanding across all varieties.

Vinification
The 2014 Yountville was a selection of blocks 304, 311, 312 with an average vine age of 18 years. Once harvested, the grapes werehand-sorted to inspect individual berries. The must was thenfermented in separate lots and barrel aged for 12 months beforebeing blended and returned to barrel for further maturation.

Tasting Notes
Instantly appealing with abundant blueberry fruit with beetroot, couverture, licorice and black olives. The palate is soft rich and round with dark chocolate, satsuma plums and creme de cassis providing a plump and fleshy middle balanced by a creamy, savory and fine velvety structure with great persistence with layers of flavor and texture.

Serving and Cellaring
A truly classic Napa Cabernet with an exuberance of youth which will evolve beautifully with medium to long term cellaring.
