2014 Acumen Mountainside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Quick Overview

This full-bodied wine opens with aromas of violets, lavender, fresh rosemary, and espresso. On the palate we find flavors of black cherries, red plums, mountain blueberries, mission figs, and chocolate covered orange peel with sweet clay, freshly turned earth, and pencil shavings giving way to ripe, mouth-coating tannins on the long and powerful finish. An elegant and well-balanced combination of fruit, tannic structure, and acidity, this is our finest Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon to date.

2014 Acumen Mountainside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Founded by proprietor Eric Yuan, and guided by a team that includes acclaimed Winemaker Henrik Poulsen and renowned Viticulturist Garrett Buckland, Acumen is dedicated to creating the next great Napa Valley wine estate. To achieve this goal, Acumen has established an estate that features 116 organically certified acres of vines, spread across two remarkable vineyards on Napa Valley’s Atlas Peak. From these coveted grapes, the Acumen team makes a small portfolio of estate-grown wines, with a focus on mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Taking their inspiration from the great Napa Valley Cabernets of the 1960s and 1970s, Acumen’s classically structured wines are recognized for their balance, vineyard-driven complexity and uncommon age-worthiness.

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Blended with 7% Merlot plus smaller amounts of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this well-made wine is understated in its rich rounded smoothness, decadent in black cherry and a caramelized taste of vanilla.

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Well-centered on vibrant, snappy blackberry and currant fruit, this is deep and intense, with flavors that are compact and earthy, ending with dried herb, cedar and crushed rock notes. A bit clipped on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2029.
