Winemaker Celia Welch writes of the 2014 M. Étain:
Lovely fresh raspberry notes float above base tones of sweet anise, vanilla, faint smokey notes and a hint of clove. Surprisingly supple at entry, this young Cabernet shows tremendous flow across a bright palate, with consistently full body throughout and a broad, satiny finish. Cocoa, dark cheery, and raspberry jam flavors linger along with the polished, silky tannins, leaving a sense of both bright fruit and of gravity.
This Cabernet (96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot) was harvested entirelyby hand from the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley, during a harvest period lasting from September 14 until October 14, 2014. The wines were fermented on skins for approximately four weeks, then gently drained, carefully pressed, and transferred to new French oak barrels for approximately 17 months. The wine was bottle without fining or filtration in March, 2016.
