Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, Viking Estate Vineyard 2014 Shop Now

94 Points - The 100% varietal 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Viking Estate Vineyard also comes from the Viking Estate vineyard and spent 20 months in French oak. It offers a more serious, backward style in its full-bodied, concentrated profile. Terrific notes of lead pencil shavings, blackcurrants, roasted herbs and dark chocolate emerge from this beautiful, rich, textured Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to benefit from short term cellaring and keep for a decade or more.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Viking Estate Vineyard 2014  Shop Now

93 Points - From the Viking Estate Vineyard, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Viking Estate Vineyard spent 20 months in half new French oak barrels. It offers a terrific bouquet of toasted bread, crème de cassis, black raspberries, vanilla bean and spring flowers. Supple, sexy, layered and gorgeously polished, with tons of fruit, it would cost three times the price if it came from Napa.

Cabernet Franc Signature, Viking Estate Vineyard 2014 - email wines@adelaida.com

93 Points - A variety you don't see very often from Paso, the 2014 Cabernet Franc Signature Viking Estate Vineyard (85% Cabernet Franc, 15%Cabernet Sauvignon) spent 20 months in 50% new French oak. It has a deep ruby color to go with gorgeous notes of blackberries, blueberries, crushed violets and graphite nuances. Rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with a great texture, it shines both for its finesse and texture. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.

Finder, Estate Vineyards 2015 – Release Date: October 2017

90 Points - Much more exotic, perfumed and tropical, the 2015 Finder Estate (63% Roussanne, 36% Viognier and 1% Picpoul Blanc fermented and aged in barrel for 18 months) sports a medium gold/vibrant color to go with lots of sautéed peach, pineapple and spring flower aromas and flavors. It's beautifully fruit forward, has excellent purity and a great finish. Drink this outstanding 2015 in its youth while the fruit is front and center.
