Revenant 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
2014 Revenant Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 93 Points
The aromas of this forthcoming, generous Cabernet are richly spicy and brightly fruity. In the nose, scents of Italian Maraschino cherry, red boysenberry, red currant and blood orange zest lead toward a deeper core of Creme de Cassis: these elements finding impressive harmony with notes of baking-spice, sweet tobacco leaf, laurel and dried sage. Things are weightier than expected on the palate, yet just as bright and forthcoming, and the rich fruit, sweet-savory spice and herbal accents easily overcome the wines polished tannins. All these flavors stay focused and sweet-natured through a generous, lingering finish. Enjoy it now, or see what magic three years or more of cellar-time can deliver. Blended with 11% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. 143 cases made.
