So acclaimed Cabernets like Ideology Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 are usually snapped up right away. But the best that most of us can do is read the glowing tasting notes. Or dream of swirling the wine in our own crystal stemware someday. Which is why we jumped at the opportunity to offer this rare, final allocation of Ideology Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014. A dark red wine of generous fruit and expressive aromatics. So Ideology captures the essence of 2014’s generous vintage. But also comes with the structure to age gracefully in the cellar.
Ideology Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 presents opaque at the core. With dark burgundy and garnet hues toward the rim. Plus assertive aromatics of black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate, and bay leaf. In addition, French oak lending it lovely flashes of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla. As well as suggestions of new leather and faint cigar box. While great concentration and ripeness on the palate, with rich, chewy tannins and a deep, dark finish that fleshes out the back end. Most of all, an absolutely outstanding Napa Valley Cabernet at this price point. Drink now – 2027.
