2014 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon

  • S$18999

Country : USA

Vintage : 2014

Region : Napa Valley

Zeitgeist Cellars is a collaboration between husband and wife, Mark Porembski (winemaker at Anomaly Vineyards and Lost Cellars) and Jennifer Williams (former winemaker at Spottswoode Estate and current winemaker at Arrow&Branch and Ziata). We make the wine ourselves at Behrens Family Winery.

How We Do It

In pursuit of fine wine at fair prices, we employ conscientious selection at each step while doing the work ourselves. We’ve committed to a handful of carefully chosen vineyards, sort vigilantly through the fruit at harvest, and bottle only the best barrels. Our goal is to be thoughtful in our approach and simple in our methods. We make each exceptionally small batch of wine ourselves and guide them carefully through fermentation and aging. The results are two beautiful Heritage white varietals and a small stable of excellent Cabernet Sauvignons.

2014 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

  • Alcohol: 14.8% 
  • Appellation: Napa Valley

Zeitgeist

Wine Advocate 94 pts

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from four separate AVAs: Coombsville, St. Helena, Yountville and Oakville. There is plenty of crème de cassis fruit, an inky purple color, notes of charcoal, toast, blackcurrants, and spicy oak are present in this dense, full-bodied opulently concentrated wine. It is multi-layered, impressive and has the silky suppleness of the 2014 vintage as a hallmark. Drink it over the next 15-20+ years."

Tasting notes:

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.

Winehours notes:

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.
