Carter Cellars Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
We have become more and more excited about our prospects of making great wine from the Weitz Vineyard and the 2014 vintage is showing exceptionally well. In the glass the wine is translucent purple and opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis and crushed petals. Notably plush tannins and natural acidity are coupled with a distinct minerality from the volcanic soils. Considerable depth and fruit will continue to develop as the structure starts to integrate with bottle age and bring tremendous purity and allure. Decanting a few hours will benefit this wine for early drinking; cellar for 5-10 years to enjoy this wine in its prime.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Weitz Vineyard may actually equal, if not surpass, the 2013 version, showing loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit, incense, camphor and wonderful floral notes. It’s full-bodied, soft, round and juicy. "- Barrel Sample

The History of the Weitz Vineyard
Long considered one of the gems in Turnbull’s Vineyard portfolio, the Weitz Vineyard sits on 62 glorious acres high on the Oakville Bench above some of the most famous vineyards in the world. Characterized by fractured volcanic rocks and degraded boulders, the scarcity of soil forces the vines to struggle and naturally controls fruit production. The fruit itself is renowned for its profound structure, elegant rich texture and lingering acidity and minerality. We are proud to join such notable wineries like the Maybach Family to source fruit out of this remarkable vineyard.
