2014 Gamble Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
I was super excited to taste my first (and certainly not last) wine from Gamble Family Vineyards. This 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a flavorful and classy blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (86%), Malbec (8%), Cabernet Franc (4%), Merlot (1%) and Petit Verdot (1%). On the britgher red side in the glass with fiery red streaks at the rim, this wine expresses well-blended aromas of black fruits, blackberry jam, well toasted French bread and pencil lead. In the mouth is a medium bodied wine that feels polished and refined. It's really difficult to imagine that this wine is so young. It drinks like a wine that has been in the cellar, aging appropriately and gracefully for ten or more years. In the mouth are flavors of the same dark fruits, cocoa powder, mocha, clove and some sweet spices. The finish isn't extremely long, but this wine is one that keeps you wanting to tip the bottle in your favor. I am genuinely impressed!
