2014 Red Door
In 2014, Cabernet Sauvignon was once again rich and elegant, with the new Windy Flats vineyard really pulling in the intense flavors and Baker providing the mountain structure. We had small lots of Petit Verdot and Malbec that worked together building depth and they had wonderful individuality that would be lost in a big blend, so the Red Door can give them a place to show off. From these outstanding lots we created a small quantity of an amazing wine. It is still evolving, but the fruit and oak work to build the Red Door into one of our best wines ever. The wine was bottled unfiltered, so the cork will have a bit of sludge on it upon opening.
The 2014 Red Door has deep concentrated aromas of blackberry and chocolate-covered cherries. The entry of this wine is juicy with its blackberry and black cherry fruit, and just a hint of sage in the ripe tannins. It finishes with a velvety texture and mocha flavors.
