The Mascot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$139.99

Made from the younger vines of Harlan Estate, BOND, and Promontory, The Mascot shares a unique glimpse into the evolution of our winegrowing estates. The Mascot began early on as an experiment, after talking the family and winemaking team into sparing a few barrels of wine - produced from our younger vines - to explore a blend of my own. In the first few years, before it had a label or a name, it was just a wine shared with friends and family. It wasn’t until the 2008 vintage, our first official release, that we had enough to share with new friends. The Mascot is one of the newer wine labels from the famed Harlan family, but this time...it's the younger Will Harlan! Although Will Harlan grew up running around the winery, hand-turning de-stemmers, and eating grapes off the vines in his family's backyard, he never quite thought he'd become a winemaker.

Difficult on the nose. Definitely smell the higher alcohol. BlackBerry, vanilla on the nose. Decanted an hour, starting to open up. High acidity and tannins with not too juicy fruit. Tasting very nice but still a little young. Look forward to having this in another couple years.

Amazing fruit with a great mix of power, structure and acidity. The balance is there but it will take more time and o soften up a bit and fully integrate the tannins with the fruit. Revisit in 3yrs.
