The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dense cherry aromas that carry through to the palate. Extended maceration adds richness and length to the wine while 16 months of aging in predominately French Oak barrels lend flavors of warm spice. This is a well-balanced wine that can be enjoyed now and for years to come.
Certified Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing
Our LangeTwins Estate Cabernet Sauvignon draws on winegrapes from three estate vineyards in the center of the Lodi Appellation. From gentle rolling vineyard floors to the influence of a nearby river, each vineyard has unique attributes that are essential to the consistent style and quality.
After a cold snap in December 2013, the 2014 growing season transitioned to a mild winter and spring. With the current drought conditions we welcomed the late February and early March rains that were well-timed and kept the vines growing. Consistent sunny weather from mid-March on led to early bud break in the vineyards as temperatures rose. A few weeks of warm weather in the late summer months allowed the winegrapes to ripen early, making 2014 one of the earliest harvests on record. On the vine, most varietals had loose clusters that resulted in even veraison, bringing about uniform ripening which is necessary for winegrapes to develop great flavors and color. With average yields and great quality, the 2014 season produced another unique vintage.
