2014 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon
Country : USA
Vintage : 2014
Region : Napa Valley
The 2014 Zeitgeist Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, our 9th vintage, is without a doubt the finest and most serious Zeitgeist Cabernet to date. Although we have gradually added new vineyards to the stable, the same work-horse vineyards that make up the core of the blend have been consistent since 2005. The Zeitgeist Cabernet blend captures the warm climate and alluvial soils found in St. Helena, the marine influence of the west facing foothills of Coombsville and the well drained, gravelly clay soils of the historic Sleeping Lady Vineyard in Yountville.

This blend of 99.5% Cabernet and 0.5% Petit Verdot reminds us of berry compote on first smell. It is confident and dense as it coats your palate. Rich mocha flavors and pointed scents of spice fill the center of the wine. The tannins are fine and slightly chewy. This wine will age beautifully for years.
Zeitgeist Cellars is a collaboration between husband and wife winemaking team, Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams. Mark’s wife, a California native, Jen entered the wine business through the vineyard beginning with a degree in agriculture from Cal Poly. She was the winemaker for Spottswoode Winery and many other popular wineries. Zeitgeist is a product of this intimacy.
