2014 GOLDSCHMIDT “GAME RANCH VINEYARD” CABERNET SAUVIGNON, OAKVILLE

It reminds me of an Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon on steroids, because it’s so incredibly deep, full and concentrated. As the wine opens up it tells a story of the vineyard and it’s a book that you won’t want to put down…
Cellared for an impressive 31 months in oak barrels, this is a classic depiction of Oakville Cabernet is reminiscent of Groth Reserve and Meyer Bonney’s with broad shoulders and deep, captivating flavors that unwind methodically as the wine opens in the glass. Created by talented winemaker Nick Goldschmidt whom many of you recognize from his Crazy Creek Cabernet… arguably the best value in California Cabernet.
