Our Wolf’s Head Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Calistoga region located in the northern part of Napa Valley, home to some of the biggest, boldest wines in the Napa region. The vines are planted in a rich volcanic red soil and the high daytime and cool night time temperatures provide for intense colors, rich flavors, a touch of acidity and a ton of tannic structure in the grapes.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
Upon initial pour, the 2014 Wolf’s Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of fresh leather, earthy minerals and dusty graphite. With a little time in the glass these characteristics evolve into sweet, dark cherries, blackberries and cassis with hints of tobacco. Dark cherries and black currants dominate the mid-palate and carry through into the long finish with some cedar notes. This wine shows great fruit extraction and a characteristically long finish that leaves one wanting more. Wolf’s Head’s winemaker, Cameron Woodbridge, has really hit his stride with this wine, our third vintage.

“These wines are made by Cameron Woodbridge, who’s also behind the terrific Stormy Weather wines, also reviewed in this report. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Wolf’s Head (28 months in just 29% new French oak) has a kiss of sweet oak as well as beautiful crème de cassis fruit and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced feel on the palate. Elegance and seamless are the buzzwords, but this beauty has tons of fruit and richness as well and tastes like it cost 2-3 times its listed price. Drink it any time over the coming 15 years or so. Maturity 2019-2034”
