Tasting Notes: 2014 Art Bus (tasted 9/11/18 by HPB)
One of my favorite wines to make, Art Bus is a creative blend that shows off the delicious fruit we grow at our own Calistoga property (Cab Sauv and Syrah). We don’t make it every year, but were able to produce its fourth iteration in the bountiful 2014 vintage. It shows a dense, dark ruby color with deep aromas of ripe fruit, black plums, dark cherry, and cedar, with sweet toasty French oak notes. On the palate, it’s very mouth-coating and rich, with explosive flavors. I love the silky yet powerful impact and chewy texture of this wine – it definitely has a wow factor! A big wine that will age nicely, with serious structure and perfect balance – already impressive and enjoyable upon release.
