Liparita V. Block Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2014  - Last Bottle

Liparita V. Block Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2014

“Why pay $25 when you could pay $60?”, said no one, EVER. 

CABERNET, folks -- peep this: LIPARITA. Yes - it’s back and we have a skin-tinglingly fantastic price today -- truly amazing so please do NOT waste a precious moment in snagging it! We’ve been selling out of everything early these days, so ya know, go go go or you get the empty box picture…! 91 POINTS to boot!

Resurrected in 2006, Liparita these days is headed up by winemaker Anne Vawter, who worked and trained with Heidi Barrett at the much-loved Paradigm winery, and has a long resume of great wines including Karen Cakebread’s Ziata, Oakville Ranch, Hoopes and many more!! In fact, the historic Liparita label traces its origins all the way back to the late 1800s. The founder, William Keyes, was an early pioneer in the history of California winemaking, having been among the first to designate an appellation wine with his Howell Mountain Claret. 

Anne says of this wine: "2014 is a voluptuous vintage. This is a layered and refined expression of our Liparita Cabernet, still powerful, but with an active mid-palate and spacious freshness on the finish." 

We say: the price is madness. What are we even doing? The wine, for us, is medium-weight, packed with juicy black and blue fruits, exotic vanilla bean, tobacco leaf, blackberry extract, and mocha. We WILL run low quite quick...grab it while we got it!!

Showing deep garnet in the glass and with heady aromas of strawberry, raspberry and ripe plum. The nose is balanced nicely with ripe characters of blackberry jelly, honey, caramel and creamy milk chocolate. Lively and focused in the mouth, with juicy ripe red fruit and lush, well integrated tannins. Sweet cigar box and sappy bayberry offer a warm rich counterpoint and bring balance to the palate of expressive fruit. This is a layered and refined expression of our Liparita Cabernet, still powerful, but with an active mid-palate and spacious freshness on the finish.

About The Producer

Liparita Cellars. is a century old Ghost Winery brand whose appellation-specific Cabernets were the pioneering wines of Napa Valley. Today, we are dedicated to creating wine in the same spirit that embodied the award-winning wines produced in its thriving past.

Single vineyard exploration of a beautiful benchlands vineyard in the Yountville Appellation. We have produced what we consider a modern Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in an attempt to capture the frontier spirit intrinsic in the founder of Liparita, William Keynes, when he started the winery in 1880. Further, this appellation specific wine was designed to capture the unique characteristics of the soils in Yountville, one of the newer appellations in the valley.
