The 2014 Fortitude Cabernet presents both power and fi­nesse in the highly extracted and concentrated aromas of dark blackberry and black cherry. There is amazing structure from the 2014 vintage, which supports an expansive palate saturated with blackberry liqueur, juicy black cherry, dark chocolate and black licorice. There are firm, brooding tannins with lots of layers and volume, ­finishing with tremendous length. This is a huge wine that can easily balance the sweet oak notes from the new French oak barrels. It will reward extended aging; decant fi­rst if you can’t wait. Only 246 cases produced.

Wine Advocate 96+ Points: "Very deep garnet-purple, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortitude has a blockbuster cassis and chocolate box nose with underlying blackberry preserves, dried mulberries, roses, damp soil and cedar box. Medium to fullbodied, the palate is firmly structured with grainy tannins and a lively backbone cutting through the dense black fruit, finishing with perfumed layers." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
