The 2014 Mockingbird Red is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance made up of Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. It’s a rich and vibrant wine with a powerful yet elegant finish. The wine is made from nearly equal parts of three well-known and highly regarded vineyards in St Helena, Calistoga and Oakville.
Blend: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants and wet earth. Some fresh mushrooms. Full body, medium velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tight and structured. Needs two to three years to open. Impressive.
