Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Rocca was very popular with our tasters. It opens with a blackberry bouquet with hints of flowers. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich, lush and concentrated. The flavor profile is a black currant and mineral blend with notes of oak and black pepper. We also detected hints of blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate well-managed tannins drift away nicely. We would pair this with beef Wellington. Enjoy - KWGTP (Available directly from the winery)

Winemaker Notes: Our 2014 Grigsby Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect example of the gorgeous balance, charm, and opulence of Napa Valley's 2014 vintage. The Grigsby Vineyard's classic, sophisticated rock dust component is on full display here, intertwined with the site's rich red and black fruit, a prominent milk chocolate note, and elegant high tones of spring flowers.
