Carter Cellars Fortuna Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


Tasting Notes

We were truly excited about our return to the vineyard after over a decade and are just as excited about this wine. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortuna Vineyard is a true expression of a great Napa Valley Cabernet from the Oakville floor. This extraordinary wine offers up inky jam colored hue with wonderfully sweet notes of blue and black fruits comingled with floral notes. The wood seems perfectly integrate and the wine is full-bodied and multi-dimensional with an extremely long and pure finish.

"As for the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortuna Vineyard, it has a dark ruby/purple color, medium to full body, ..... it’s charming, sexy, seductive and best drunk over the next decade."- Barrel Sample

~ Robert Parker


 

Map of the Fortuna Vineyard

The History of the Fortuna Vineyard

In Oakville, this 59 acre site on Napa Valley's floor has ancient red volcanic soils and alluvial cobblestone from the adjoining Vaca Mountain Range. Off the Silverado Trail, this unique sloping bench produces spicy fruit with tannic backbone and then combines with the tell-tale dust that have made Napa Valley Oakville Cabernets so famous.
