ABOUT THIS WINE
In general, 2014 was a great vintage for the top producers in the Rutherford appellation in Napa Valley. Besides offering a perfect balance of elegance, power and luxurious flavors in each sip, the best wines also offer that classic “Rutherford Dust” character that set them apart from all the rest. For a delicious example, try the Wm. Harrison 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
94 POINTS - "With an admirable dark red hue, the wine opens up with seductive aromas of ripe red fruits, wild berries, black figs, cocoa, toffee, earth and cedar. On the palate, the flavors expand with generous notes boysenberry, blackberry, cassis and more subtle touches of vanilla bean, caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and fine French oak. Dynamic, intriguing, and rewarding." - Chris Sawyer
93 POINTS - "At first whiff you will get big bold dark fruit right up front. Great tones of raw baking spice and dry earth round this out. The taste is very structured with dark plum, black cherry, and a sweet woodsy spice from the oak. Final touches of walnut and that dry cocoa powder Rutherford dust finishes it off. I recommend to decant for 15 to 30 minutes and pair with a meal deserving of this wine." - Steve Kleinfeld
William Harrison Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made from two of the three Cabernet Sauvignon blocks grown on our Rutherford estate. The majority of this wine is made from “old” (1991) Cabernet Sauvignon block, along with some of the “young” (1997) block Cabernet Sauvignon
