2014 Promise Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: With grapes sourced from the Winston Hill vineyard in Rutherford, the 2014 vintage exudes vibrancy, depth, and power. Deep black and red fruits mingle with leather, cedar and chocolate. The wine possesses strong and silky tannins culminating in a complex yet refined finish.
Vintner Notes: Promise Wine started as a dedication from Stephen McPherson to his wife, Jennifer more than a decade ago. They harvested their first vintage in 2004. Having a great reverence for the first growths and other amazing wines of Bordeaux, they aspired to someday be recognized along side these renowned offerings. The intention has always been to find that magical tension between flavor, depth, balance and structure. With very limited production, they practice focused micro farming techniques, and age the wines for 30 months in new barrels from the famed Darjanou & Taransaud cooperages. This helps Promise achieve the flavor, complexity, and age worthy juice they desired.
