2014 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Game Farm Vineyard
The inaugural 2014 vintage of C. Elizabeth Cabernet Sauvignon was our first opportunity to work with fruit from the exceptional “Rock Pit” block within the Game Farm Vineyard located on the southeastern corner of the Oakville AVA. It was also our first time aging wine exclusively in American oak – an important component in the C. Elizabeth team’s winemaking vision. We trialed and tasted a myriad of blends throughout aging. These trials enabled us to further hone which barrel lots moved us closest to achieving our winemaking vision – one that would allow grape and place to shine through with a judicious underpinning of oak for structure.
