Our wine tonight is the 2014 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon from Piccione Vineyards in North Carolina.
We opened this bottle in celebration of OTBN North Carolina.
Swan Creek AVA
Decanted 60 minutes.
Gorgeous dark ruby color with a bright purple rim
Expressive bouquet of dark fruits, blackberries Black Cherries, Caramel, Truffles, and Mint.
Full bodied with strong tannins and showing beautiful long legs
Dry on the palate with complex flavor notes of Black Currents, Black Cherries, Dark Roasted Coffee, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Vanilla Latte, Pipe Tobacco and Mint, with a lingering finish of Eucalyptus and Burgundy Truffles.
This vintage is sold out. However, Piccione ships to most states via VinoShipper.
We paired with a grilled steak!
This wine is exceptional!
