2014 Wallis Family Estate SERAPHIM Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
The top barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Diamond Mountain vineyard, blocks 1, 4, and 8, were chosen by winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown for the 2014 SERAPHIM. This is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a limited production of 270 cases aged in 80% new French oak. The 2014 growing season was the third year into a drought cycle, but the '12, '13, '14 Napa Valley vintages have done exceptionally well with these conditions. The 2014 vintage represents the Wallis vineyard being 16 years old, providing rich, powerful grapes for a wine that will benefit from aging in the cellar.
Thomas Brown winemaker notes: "The 2014 vintage was the third growing season in a row that was ideal for wine grape growing. Temperatures remained even and consistent throughout the year and our pick decision was not forced by inclement weather, allowing the fruit to realize full maturity of flavors and complexity well into October. This wine has a deep purple, opaque hue in the glass. Classic Diamond Mountain aromatic notes of toasted cedar bark, cassis, violet, and nutmeg are densely layered. The mouth feel is framed by a velvety set of tannins with notes of bramble, fresh loam, black currant, mint and ends with an expansive smoky finish that lingers for some time.” Thomas Brown, January 2017
The label design, "Six-fold Infinite Rings," references the symmetry of a Seraphim as having six wings. Edward Wallis has a more modern interpretation of the Six-fold Infinite Rings as portraying six members at a dinner table with the Seraphim as the fuel for inspired conversations. Robert Fathauer was the artist for the beautiful wine bottle artwork.
