Salient Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A full-bodied, complex, aged Cabernet Sauvignon from Spring Mountain District — a high-end AVA within the famed Napa Valley.

Salient focuses on modern expressions of California's most iconic varietals, and notable sub-AVAs where these grapes grow exceptionally well. This Cabernet Sauvignon hails from Spring Mountain District, a high-end sub-appellation of Napa Valley that has a reputation for excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. The mountainside-grown grapes were cold-soaked for three days (for added color and structure), before fermentation in stainless steel and aging in 20% new French oak barrels for 19 months. The result exhibits firm structure and chalky tannins, making it a great companion for dishes such as filet mignon and roasted potatoes with rosemary.
