The Wine Advocate - "The 2014 is a beauty, with plenty of finesse, forest floor, floral blueberry notes, silky tannins, medium to full body, high energy, a vibrant mouthfeel, and a long crisp finish with loads of blue and black fruits. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2014 Red Wine (Sonoma County) has turned out beautifully. Ripe, luscious and voluptuous to the core, the 2014 exudes richness and concentration. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc give the wine its lifted aromatics, while the Merlot adds softness and juiciness throughout. With a little aeration, the 2014 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The 2014 spent ten months in oak, about 30% new."
Old world style, showcasing a ruby core moving to a pinkish-purple outer rim. Initial aromas are of high-toned red fruit: wild young strawberries, just-picked raspberries and cherries yield to a second, more brooding layer of black currant and plums. Through the lifted floral expression of violets, damson and lilacs, an earth-driven bouquet emerges, showing iron, clay, and a loamyvolcanic ash. Seamless in its structural integrity, Cenyth isan expansive, silky expression of tannins that will age gracefully for the next 10-15 years.
