La Stella 2014 La Sophia Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 La Sophia like past vintages continues to wow right off the bat. The colour is deep purple and opaque. It presents a great nose of cassis and elderberry mingling with cigar box, dusty pottery studio notes, dry sauna, grilled anaheim peppers and fermented tobacco leaves. On the palate, there is great weight, firm and chewy tannins with balanced natural acidity. Decant for an extended time or keep your hands off and let this jewel of a Cabernet slumber in the cellar for at least a few years. The tannins are firmer and the acidity is higher than our Merlots. As a result the wine benefits from pairing with fattier cuts of meat and dishes that are higher in acidity. Herb crusted rack of lamb is a winning pairing.
