Jamieson Ranch Vineyards Double Lariat Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Enticing aromas jump out of the glass with this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of black currant, anise, and cedar intrigue the senses. Flavors of cassis, blackberry, and black cherry coat the palate leading to supple tannins that carry through a lengthy finish. The Double Lariat Cabernet is highly elegant yet accessible for any occasion and any connoisseur.
The tannin structure and fruit forward notes pair beautifully with lamb ribeye, smoked beef tenderloin carpaccio and spinach stuffed mushrooms.
Tasting Panel - "Deep ruby color; smooth, lush and ripe with sweet oak and juicy plum and blackberry; rich and balanced. "
The Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Lariat displays plenty of sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, velvety, light tannins, medium to full body and an up-front, consumer-friendly style that begs for consumption over the next 7-10 years. This is no wimpy offering at 14.7% natural alcohol and may actually last far past a decade. It’s a sleeper of the vintage and a reasonably good value from Napa."
Wine Enthusiast - "Tingling acidity keeps this wine fresh. It is an impressive Cab, blended with small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot, that's aged in French oak. Lively, the oak is soft and approachable, making room for the bright notions of dark cherry, cassis and vanilla that linger on the generous finish."

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is the southernmost winery in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s foremost winemaking regions. The estate’s more than 300 acres of gently rolling hills and terraced vineyards benefit from the cooling fog and breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay, climatic conditions that favor the production of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The unique architecture of Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is reminiscent of a majestic western mountain lodge, replete with soaring ceilings, seating around a cozy fireplace, an observation gallery overlooking the barrel room and production area, and a spectacular wraparound veranda that affords sweeping views of the Napa Valley and San Pablo Bay.

About Napa ValleyView a map of Napa Valley wineries
It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux Blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
Notable FactsWithin the Napa Valley lie smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two is St.-Helena and finally, just granted an AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap and Mount Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
About CaliforniaIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country unto itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.
