As the vines in Panek Vineyard mature, we're noticing a savory element in the wine that adds a pleasant complexity to what has been a consistent, generously fruited palate. In 2014, we return to the familiar red-black fruit profile, greater acidity, and caramelized sugar qualities that distinguish Cabernet Sauvignon from this site. The ten-year mark seems to be a magical one for Cabernet Sauvignon plantings in Napa Valley, and Panek Vineyard has hit its tenth anniversary with a 2014 wine that shows a walnut skin quality that makes a savory counterpoint to the familiar maple syrup character. Those who delighted in the 2012 Pulido~Walker from Panek Vineyard have cause to celebrate the arrival of this vintage with its more intricate expression. While cellaring is certainly an option for this lush Cabernet Sauvignon, you may also enjoy the 2014 now with its return to the customarily generous fruit profile, enhanced by a new complexity.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard (75% new French oak and 14.6% alcohol) has an inky purple color, loads of crème de cassis, blueberry and vanillin with graphite and licorice. It is full-bodied, exhibits terrific texture, low acidity and sweet, round tannin. This is a full-bodied classic that is delicious already, but promises to develop more nuances over the next decade and last for 20-25 years. Drink Date: 2016-2041.
