The 2014 VASO by Dana Estates Cabernet Sauvignon is a top-performing Napa Valley effort. This wine is generous and nicely-built. Enjoy its classic aromas and flavors of bright currants and oak accents with a juicy, grilled ribeye. (Tasted: April 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Lovely berry and chocolate character with soft tannins and fine texture. Medium to full body. Precise and pretty. Drink now.
Aromatically generous, the 2014 VASO Cabernet Sauvignon exudes fragrances of plum, sage, and cassis with hints of tobacco box and warm spices. Flavors of Bing cherry entice the front palate as the hillside fruit expression takes over, fusing flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate across the supple yet structured palate. Ripe strawberry and creme brulee linger on the finish. Lush and approachable now, this wine will continue to soften and develop over the next five to ten years. Enjoy with roasted meats, grilled vegetables, or perhaps a rich wild mushroom risotto.
