MAHIOLE crafts a single, limited production, vineyard designate Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Napa Valley. This broad, muscular wine is a best effort by our winemaking team to showcase the distinctive character and quality of Andy Beckstoffer’s Missouri Hopper Vineyard in Oakville.
“The 2014 MAHIOLE shows spectacular structure and impeccable balance that are present from start to lingering finish. Blended from the finest barrel lots of the vintage, this elegant wine offers richness, power and complexity.
The wine opens with a magnificent and enveloping wave of blackcurrants and blackberries that evolve into fresh blueberry pie with notes of violet and fruit compote. Sweet, spicy oak suggests toasted barrels, espresso and dark chocolate, with accents of savory cedar and cigar box unfolding in the background. Uncommonly concentrated and perfectly balanced, the radiant tannins roll out like velvet across the palate and complete this benchmark wine.”
