Volker Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
In the glass the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a glowing deep garnet color, with clear ruby edges. The nose is a juicy, brambly mix of raspberries, blackberries, huckleberries and cocoa powder. In the mouth, the wine is richly layered with flavors of milk chocolate covered cherries, cassis, freshly roasted coffee. Supported by well-integrated sweet oak. The finish is broad, and flavors of clove and star anise linger. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its elegance, depth and complexity. Terzetto is a unique proprietary blend of co-fermented Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, while Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, combined in the Bordeaux style, create the luscious Gemini.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
