2014 SAUNTER “EAGLE SUMMIT VINEYARD” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$110.00 $110.00

Absolutely remarkable… and a wine that’s been rocking me to the core every time I taste it.  Saunter’s Cabernet Sauvignon from the Eagle Summit Vineyard, perched at 2100 feet elevation on Howell Mountain, enters your palate with a spectacular display of sweet tannins mingled together with pure, focused, intense flavors and absolutely massive concentration.  It’s made by Thomas Rivers Brown, whom you may recognize from Schrader, Revana, Maybach, Gemstone and Outpost.  Brown made history as the first American winemaker to receive a perfect 100 Point score from the Wine Spectator, and has had more than a dozen 100 Point wines in his career.

The winery was launched in 2006 by Josh and Heather Clark, owners of Clark Vineyard Management, one of wine country’s most sought after vineyard management companies, who’s list of clients include icons like Outpost, Hourglass, Kinsella and Pulido Walker to list a few…   A tantalizing interpretation of Howell Mountain terroir that spends 18-20 months in oak and showcases dramatic levels of poise and concentration, making it nearly impossible to resist.  Incredibly stimulating and mesmerizing to taste, so much so, that finding the most unerring words to describe just how truly exceptional this wine is, proves to be remarkably challenging.  Although, those of you who’ve tasted any of Thomas Brown’s wines likely don’t need any convincing…

Description

2014 SAUNTER “EAGLE SUMMIT VINEYARD” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Only 250 cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Eagle Summit Vineyard were made, by none other than the well-known consultant Thomas Brown. Beautifully sweet tannins, a dense purple color, and a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel with no hard edges are the earmarks of Thomas Brown’s winemaking style. There’s beautiful concentration but nothing out of balance or rustic in this wine. This is a full-bodied classic from Howell Mountain with plenty of blueberry, mulberry and blackcurrant fruit, a floral note and restrained oak. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. 93 Points
