2014 Eos Cabernet Sauvignon, Central Coast
The Central Coast AVA is one of the largest and most important grape growing regions in California. Its boundaries stretch from Santa Barbara County in the south all the way up to San Francisco in the north. The geographical diversity of the region yields a plethora of distinct microclimates and affords winegrowers the unique ability to produce a staggering number of grape varietals.
The 2014 vintage was another dry year, with a mild winter that set the stage for an earlier than average start to harvest. The warm weather continued after winter, but with few heat spikes for a consistent spring and summer. Overall, the fruit was high in quality and quantity, with small berry sizes producing concentrated, more intense flavors.
Our 2014 Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon offers sultry aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cassis, and hints of earth. The palate possesses enough tannins to support the fruit for a long finish.
