The 2014 The Mascot is a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon made from distinct hillside vineyards, specifically, the younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate, and Promontory. Drawing fruit from blocks of recently replanted vineyards, The Mascot shares a glimpse into the evolution of its parent estates, a youthful snapshot of their future. Red fruit and baking spice intermingle on the nose, while on entry, the wine is soft, gently accelerating as it reveals athletic structure and shape, culminating in transparency and poise. This Cabernet is a hedonistic blend of power and balance; expressive and approachable early in its life, but with potential to evolve well into the future. Ready to drink upon release, it will age for decades given the opportunity.
