"The flagship wines include the 2014 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from three sources Äì the family vineyard called Molehill at a 1700-feet elevation on Howell Mountain, the Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard and Heimark Vineyard in Calistoga. A gorgeous 2014, with notes of graphite, mulberry and blackcurrant, this full-bodied, opaque purple wine offers terrific fruit purity, sweet tannin, and a long finish of a good 45+ seconds. It was aged 19 months in 75% new French oak and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. There are 1,064 cases, and it can be drunk now or cellared for another 25 years."

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon John Daniel Cuvée offers up a compelling mélange of smoke, minerals, graphite and crushed rocks that nicely balances the deep, inky fruit that is such a signature of this bottling. Robin Lail and here winemaker, Philippe Melka, push ripeness to the edge. The 2014 has a bit more freshness and energy than is the norm, both of which offer an attractive counterpoint to the wine's unctuousness. -AG"
