Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Appellation||Walla Walla Valley|
Wine AdvocateOne of the gems in this terrific vintage, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla AVA. It offers fabulous notes of black currants, chocolate, toasted spice and graphite. Full-bodied, deep, layered and gorgeously pure, with plenty of heft, it's an incredibly good, even profound, effort to drink over the coming two decades. Hats off to the team for this beauty, and if you can find it, buy it.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of McQueen, Bob Healy and Lefore vineyard fruit, aged 22 months in 73% new French oak. Alluring aromas of macerated cherries, scorched earth, coffee, barrel spice and dark chocolate are followed by supple, focused, concentrated dark-fruit flavors. It brings some tannic heft that will benefit from time in the cellar. Best from 2023-2030.
Wine SpectatorWell-built but tightly wound, with expressive boysenberry, licorice and coffee flavors that lead to firm tannins. Best after 2018. 2,492 cases made.
