2014 The Bishop Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94-96 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
98 Points - International Wine Report

This wine honors the artistry and passion of Vice President of Winemaking, Steve Leveque, whose last name translates in French to “The Bishop.” The Bishop embodies a truly special experience – the combination of complexity, concentration, and elegance crafted from exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.

Predominantly Diamond Mountain fruit, the 2014 blend is all about dust, ink and crushed rock, complemented by the seductive cocoa and berry coulis flavors of Howell Mountain fruit. These earth-driven characteristics give this extremely powerful wine an old-world feel.

Appellation: Napa Valley
Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Barrel Aging: 26 Months in 100% New French Oak
Winemaker: Steve Leveque

"The stunning 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon the Bishop shows dense purple color, stunning crème de cassis fruit with licorice and blueberry liqueur. It’s full-bodied, ripe, opulent, voluptuous, and feminine but authoritative in style. This should drink well for another 15 to 20 years. An impressive wine certainly, and among a star-struck line of 2014s this stands out as a Titanic effort."
94-96 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"One of the most impressive wines from the vintage this offers incredible aromatics of cigar box, anise, crème de cassis, coffee grounds and wild blackberry pie, which soar from the glass. Hedonistic and seductive, this continues to impress with its gorgeous plush texture that delivers deep, penetrating layers of sweet pipe tobacco, mocha, crème de cassis, allspice and espresso which cascade on the palate. The seamless quality and textural weight is absolutely fantastic making this nothing short of irresistible."
