Winemaker Notes

The 2014 growing season began very early with winter drought conditions leading to early bud break and one of the earliest harvests on record. March rains fueled the vines and moderate summer weather allowed the grapes to develop at an even pace. Cabernet Sauvignon began to achieve optimal ripeness early September and was picked through mid-October. The wines are marked by intensely dark color, robust aromatics and excellent overall fruit character. Home Ranch Vineyard offered small yields in 2014, resulting in a highly concentrated wine with inky color and persistent length. Cabernet Sauvignon from a neighboring vineyard in southern Sonoma Valley was blended in, resulting in a complex cuvee. The wine was aged for 20 months in 60% new French oak barrels from top coopers Darnajou, Taransaud and Bel Air.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Home Ranch Cuvee offers notes of black and red currants, blueberries and cigar boxes with hints of bay leaves, menthol and mocha. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the generous black berry and menthol flavors are well supported by firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.

Sonoma Valley

View all wine

Perhaps the most historically significant appellation in Sonoma County, the Sonoma Valley is home to both Buena Vista winery, California's oldest commercial winery, and Gundlach Bundschu winery, California's oldest family-run winery.

It is also one of the more geologically and climactically diverse districts. The valley includes and overlaps four distinct Sonoma County sub-appellations, including Carneros, Moon Mountain District, Sonoma Mountain and Bennett Valley. With mountains, benchlands, plains, abundant sunshine and the cooling effects of the nearby Pacific, this appellation can successfully produce a wide range of grape varieties. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer, and most notably, Zinfandel all thrive here. Ancient Zinfandel vines over 100 years old produce small crops of concentrated, spicy fruit, which in turn make some of the Valley's most unique wines. These can also be made as “field blends” (wines made from a mix of grape varieties grown in the same vineyard) along with Petite Sirah, Carignan and Alicante Bouschet.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is now the world's most planted grape variety. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
