Forman Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014
VM94: "Forman's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely precision to match its mid-weight, gracious personality. The flavors are bright, floral and nicely focused. The 2014 is attractive, but it remains on the lighter side of things, even within the context of Ric Forman's Cabernets. I imagine the 2014 will age well on its freshness. It will be interesting to see if the 2014 gains depth in bottle. What is clear, though, is that the 2014 has been more and more reticent each time I have tasted it. Readers will have to be patient." - Antonio Galloni
Ric Forman purchased his vineyard at the base of Howell Mountain in 1978, after three years of searching for the perfect property. Rick produces wines from this remarkable location with a traditional approach inspired by a trip to Bordeaux. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers raspberry jam, spice, mint, and sweet floral nots. So pure and beautiful.
