2014 GRASSI “SHINER SERIES” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
We run across many second wines, but they don’t necessarily come in second place… Particularly when they’re created from Estate fruit and crafted by a brilliant winemaker. When you factor in that Super Seconds often come at a lower price, it’s something to really pay close attention to. Grassi’s 6 barrel production of their 2014 Shiner Series Cabernet is incredibly fabulous and lucky for consumers it also comes in at around $30/btl below their Estate Cabernet… It’s brought to life by Robbie Meyer, whose experience includes 5 vintages at the iconic Peter Michael Winery, as well as time at Lewis Cellars, Jericho Canyon, Del Dotto, and Meyer is currently the winemaker for Pierson Meyer…
Emanating from Grassi’s Estate Vineyard located on Soda Canyon Road, which is positioned about a mile South of the Stag’s Leap District, and rests just below Atlas Peak AVA, Grassi excelled in 2014… The clonal selection includes 337, which is commonly used in cult Cabernets and is known for producing bold yet luscious wines with some spice, dark berry flavors, and supple tannins. Aged for 20 months in Oak, this wine has everything I look for in a high-end Napa valley Cabernet, except the high price.
