The 2014 Liar’s Poker Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from select vineyards in the highly acclaimed Napa Valley. This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% new French Oak. Winemaker, Steve Matthiasson, is one of the most highly acclaimed winemakers in his generation, four time nominee for a James Beard award for excellence in winemaking. Steve hand selected vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley for this exclusive blend. The grapes were harvested with a wonderful level of freshness, vividly preserved flavors and aged in the finest new oak barrels. This is our rarest and most exclusive wine. 2014 was hailed as a perfect growing season in the Napa Valley and a very highly praised vintage. The third year of a drought cycle which lends to better mid-weight structure, softer tannins and silkier texture.
Dark, aromatic and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2014 exudes freshness and finesse from the very first taste. Polished and refined, with deep concentration rich, intense and radiant. Graphite, plums, crème de cassis, lavender and rose petal notes are all laced together with stewed plum, cocoa and aged leather yet there is plenty of minerality underpinning the fruit. Cassis and red stone fruits build into the tense, brilliant finish.
