2014 Audēre Red Blend

2014 Audēre Red Blend

Audēre (Latin) -- To dare! To venture! Audēre was born from premium hillside Napa Valley grapes. All of this mountain fruit comes from Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, the Silverado foothills, and was barrel aged for 23 months in 90% new French & Hungarian oak. Unlike the 2013 Audēre, which was predominantly Merlot based, this 2014 vintage is technically a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon even though we classify it as a red blend. This gives us the freedom every vintage to create the best possible blend after we put together our top tier flagship wines. Indulge in risk!

Varietal Composition: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot & 5% Malbec

"The least expensive of these wines, with their baroque, neo-Gothic artwork on the label, is the 2014 Audère. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, it is a big, bold, exuberant, rich wine with lots of extract, some serious tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel with oodles of black fruits, licorice and charcoal. It is still tight and unyielding, but there’s loads of potential, with plenty of extract and richness. Give it another several years of bottle age, as it is certainly capable of lasting 10-15 years." — Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 90+ Points
