"Even better than the 2013 (and this is probably the only cuvée about which I can say that when it comes to Bordeaux varietals), the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate is super-dense, displaying sweet crème de cassis, Christmas fruitcake and spice box notes as well as a long, opulent mouthfeel, crushed rock and lead pencil shavings, and a round, generous, sumptuous mouthfeel. It is a killer effort and a great example of Coombsville viticulture. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Kudos to Paul Hobbs! "

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate Vineyard is distinguished by its salivating energy and tension. Powerful in the glass, but also incredibly precise and crystalline, the 2014 opens yet another window into the personality of Paul Hobbs's estate vineyard in Coombsville. There is no shortage of potential or breed here. -AG"

"Aromas of dark berry, cherry, rose and plum firm quickly, giving the tannins muscular flex that provides the framework around a dense core of licorice-scented flavors. Best from 2020 through 2034.—J"

Nathan Coombs Estate has southwestern exposures with soils of Guenoc Rock Outcrop Complex, Haire Loam, Haire Clay Loam and Sobranate Loam. Fruit is hand-harvested at night and hand-sorted while still cold from the field.

Grapes are fermented in small, closed top, stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. The juice undergoes a 6-day cold soak and 30 days total maceration with gentle pumpovers and delestage. Fruit ages 20 months in French oak barrels (100% new) with spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrels.
