Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 special selection reserve cabernet sauvignon 

Progeny’s Special Selection Reserve (S.S.R.) consists of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. We aged our eighth vintage 20 months in French oak barrels, followed by 12 months in our 25 hectoliter Oval Oak Tank. The S.S.R finishes with 36 months of bottle aging before release. This wine captures the prime essence of the Mt. Veeder appellation by demonstrating its power and long aging capability.

Showcasing a dark ruby red, mostly opaque center with a vibrant red hue, expresses aromas of dense black fruits and oiled leather, opening to a bouquet of caramelized brown sugar, mocha, and dried mission fig. On the palate, the S.S.R. features succulent black and blue fruit compote, currants, dried tobacco leaf, and earth layers. Elegant and complex with a broad texture, high tension, and bold tannins, the S.S.R. will provide years of dining pleasure – particularly with bold dishes featuring beef, lamb, or salmon. This wine exhibits impeccable balance. Though gorgeous now, this wine will age gracefully in the cellar for another 20+ years.
