2014 Levensohn Cabernet Sauvignon

"This blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot is deep, rich, concentrated and authoritative. Dense ruby/purple-colored, with crème de cassis and blacker fruits, some licorice and incense, it is full-bodied, beautifully pure, with sweet tannin and a long, layered finish. This is high-brow, impressive Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years."

"Aromas of blackberries, blueberries and wet earth with hints of lavender. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a savory finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019."

"Levensohn's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful, deep and sensual..."

"Levensohn's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful, deep and sensual, with all the intensity and radiance that is typical of Cabernets from this sector in St. Helena. The 2014 will appeal most to readers who like flamboyant, rich wines. Black cherry jam, mocha, espresso, menthol and licorice are fused into the huge finish. The 2014 is not a shy wine by any means, but it is very nicely done and absolutely delicious."

2013 Levensohn Cabernet Sauvignon

"…profoundly deep style of Cabernet Sauvignon… without any sense of heaviness. Pure and ripe…"

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard in St. Helena is a slightly richer, broader and more profoundly deep style of Cabernet Sauvignon than the 2012 with a nearly opaque ruby/purple color, with sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit in the intense and persistent aromatics. Full-bodied with the same alcohol as the 2012 (14.8%), the wine cuts a broad swath across the palate without any sense of heaviness. Pure and ripe but still youthful and relatively unevolved, this should be cellared for another 3-5 years and drink over the following two decades.

"… blackberry and black licorice aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a tight and polished finish."

"So much blackberry and black licorice aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a tight and polished finish. Muscular and fit red. Needs two or three years of bottle age to soften."

2015 Levensohn Cabernet Sauvignon

"Medium to full-bodied, lively and purely fruited on the palate, it has a firm, grainy backbone and long finish of spicy layers."

"Containing a 5% splash of Merlot and aged 19 months in French oak (80% new), the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color with vibrant notions of red and black currents, violets, blackberries and black cherries, plus a cinnamon toast and pencil shavings undercurrent. Medium to full-bodied, lively and purely fruited on the palate, it has a firm, grainy backbone and long finish of spicy layers."
