2014 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Jack Mast was the third generation of his family to own and carefully tend the Mast Ranch; in his whole adult life, Jack spent only one night away from his beloved farmstead. Situated on the western side of the Yountville Appellation, the alluvial bench land of the Mayacamas Mountains imparts traits unique to this acclaimed terroir: gravelly soil interspersed with sand, loam, and clay; hillside irrigation, and cool bay winds that provide perfect temperate balance for Cabernet Sauvignon vines. A staff favorite for its structured earthiness, we raise a toast to Paul Hobbs and Julian Gonzalez for another world class Cabernet of exceptional finesse.

The alluring appearance of the viscous deep purple legs invites the nose to enticing aromas of baking spice, dusty blackberries, sweet oak, and fresh baked croissants. The balanced acid palate is complemented by layers of mocha, black cherries, and ripe plum. With soft, supple tannins, this wine would pair beautifully with a rack of lamb or anything that comes from the grill. Enjoy at a moment’s whim or cellar for four to six years
