Grand Ciel

2014 Grand Ciel Cabernet 6L

Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2014 Grand Ciel Cabernet offers impeccable balance, emphasizing the focus and elegance of our estate vineyard. The power and structure of Red Mountain is showcased in the aromas of blue and black fruits with dried earth, Herbes de Provence and subtle rose petal notes.  The wine is forward and powerfully dense in the mouth, while remaining remarkably supple. Cassis, anise, pomegranate and marmalade flavors give way to integrated eucalyptus and sous bois (forest floor) nuances from the cooperage. A long finish promises exceptional cellaring time.

I loved the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Ciel from barrel, and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the top terroirs in the state, it boasts a vibrant purple color as well as classic notes of lead pencil shavings, wet gravel, black currants and chocolate. The tannin is more pronounced here than in the Shaw Red Mountain release, yet it has full-bodied richness, good concentration, beautiful balance and a great finish. I wouldn’t touch bottles for another 4-5 years.
