The biggest cuvée that Herold makes for Robert Kamen is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, at 2,100 cases, from a vineyard dominated by the volcanic basalt elevation between 1,100 and 1,500 feet. It sits above the iconic Monte Rosso Vineyard, owned by Gallo. Blueberry and blackberry fruit, forest floor, dusty/loamy notes, roasted herbs and meats all jump from the glass of this opaque purple wine. It’s dense, rich and built for long-term cellaring, this wine can be approached now because it is a 2014, but likely will evolve for 25-30 or more years. Robert Parker 96+
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Moon Mountain) is a rich, dense wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, mocha, espresso and raspberry jam give the 2014 its sweet, unctuous personality. This is an especially powerful, flamboyant style. The 2014 is attractive, but there is little question the winemaking approach dominates over an expression of site. -- Antonio Galloni 92
