2014 Akrasia Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Line of Fire Vineyard

140 CASES PRODUCED

2014 was the third straight excellent vintage for Northern California. Warm days and cool nights yielded wines with ripe flavors, ample structure and vibrant acidity. The tannins were more fine grain than the 2013 yielding wines that are elegant and polished.  This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has a complex palate of mocha, dark cherries and butterscotch with gorgeous aromas of wild berries, caramel and cocoa powder.

BLEND: 95% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 3% PETIT VERDOT

“I’ve been saying it for years; valley-floor California Cab is overcooked (a fault of the winemaker or Robert Parker, not Mother Nature) and overpriced. Give me the mid-palate subtlety of Cab, the gooey milk chocolate and soft peppermint. This is the closest thing I have had (from California) to Pichon Longueville or Pauillac in ages, elegant and restrained in its opulence.”

-Mark Buckley, Sommelier
