2014 DeLille Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags Red Mountain

Ripe but on-point Red Mountain Cabernet

2014 DeLille Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags Red Mountain

This classic Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from DeLille Cellars evinces all the hallmarks of the appellation: red fruit, black fruit, dusty earth, juniper, and—maybe I’m just suggestible—mountain air. This particular offering is riper than some of its peers, but the core sensibility of earth and brambly berries is on-point, the tannins are supple, not too drying, and the wine feels ready to drink. Pair it now with savory dishes, especially herb-inflected, or hold it for a few years to savor time’s tawny reward.
