Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon | All Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

From the Producer

The 2014 Tierra Roja continues a run of amazing Cabernets off of this singular site in the Eastern Oakville hillsides. Anyone who looks at this site, be they winemakers or newbies, understands just why these wines are so amazing. The slope, exposure and red rocky soils are just like heaven to Cabernet. This always shows a wonderful mix of red and black fruits and has such tremendous balance that there is no real beginning, middle or end. It is just an impression of seamless sweet Cabernet fruit with a bright lifted earth profile allied with blackberry, cassis and blueberry. This is easily one of the most amazing sites a Napa Cabernet can come from and the classic site where the goal is to just get out of the way and not screw it up.

Critical Acclaim

SP94 Wine Spectator Nov 15, 2017

"Firm and concentrated, with chewy, extracted dark berry, cedar, licorice and gravelly earth flavors. Engagingly complex, ending with a medley of red and black licorice notes. Best from 2021 through 2033. 216 cases made." (94 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja came in out-of-bottle at the top of its range, which is always a good sign. This is a 4-acre vineyard on the red soil hillsides, just below Dalla Valle in the Oakville corridor. This is a sexy, beautiful, fragrant wine with plenty of scorched earth, blackcurrants and licorice, but copious quantities of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a beautiful wine to drink now and, like so many 2014s, over the next 20–25 years." (95 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
