2014 Bishop's Peak Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Bishop's Peak Cabernet Sauvignon

Produced from grapes grown in the Santa Margarita Vineyard in the cool southwestern corner of the Paso Robles viticultural area, the 2014 Bishop’s Peak Cabernet Sauvignon is garnet in color with aromas of cassis and boysenberry. On the palate, notes of blackberry and dark cherry are complemented by hints of white and green pepper. This wine is medium bodied with a firm, dry finish with a touch of cedar. Try it with a wood-fired pizza or tender spare ribs.

Professional Reviews

Vinous, September 2016.  Inky ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and a hint of vanilla on the perfumed nose. Sweet, seamless dark fruit, mocha and spicecake flavors put on weight and gain energy with air. Rich yet lively; a peppery element adds cut to the long, focused finish, and fine-grained tannins add grip.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 vintage marked the third year of the California drought. Warm conditions in the spring resulted in early budbreak. Temperatures remained consistently warm in the summer followed by an uncharacteristically cool August. Warm weather returned in September which kicked off an earlier than normal harvest in the greater Paso Robles region. Grape clusters were below average in size and the yields were relatively low and flavors concentrated.
Winemaker Notes
77% cabernet sauvignon, 11% petit verdot, 8% merlot, 3% malbec, and 1% cabernet franc
