Kenefick Ranch Chris's Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Red Wine
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Chris? Cuv矇e is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Petit Verdot and Merlot. Rich and chocolaty, with plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit, this is pedal-to-the-metal, balls-to-the-walls sort of Cabernet, with no hard edges, velvety tannins, and a remarkable opulence and voluptuous texture. - WA
Dr. Kenefick was a practicing neurosurgeon in San Francisco when he first visited the area in 1970 and fell in love with the Napa Valley. Eight years later, he found this remarkable property, a 250-acre Calistoga ranch. Tucked into the foothills of the craggy Palisades, the ranch looked out onto a beautiful valley set within two mountain ranges. Nearly half the property was planted with old Italian varietals that had been head-pruned and dry farmed.
