The Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

2014 Vintage: The 2014 growing season was hot and dry, pushing harvest up to the earliest date. Fortunately, nighttime temperatures still dipped into the 50s, which was great for maintaining the natural fruit acidity. September also cooled a little, providing much needed time to catch up on getting all of the grapes in. In October, the heat returned and ripened the fruit for the balance of the harvest. Overall, this year delivered big fruit expression, great tannin development, and nice ripeness across all varietals. Winemaking: The wines were aged in oak for 16 months and then carefully blended to bring out the true character of the varietal. Tasting Notes: Classic aromas of blackberry, cherry, and cassis are wrapped in toasted caramel and soft, mouthfilling tannins. It’s elegant and supple. Food Pairing: A fun start or end to any meal or friendly gathering. Enjoy with grilled ank steak, BBQ ribs, or portabella and grilled onion burgers as a vegetarian option.
