2014 Chapel Hill cab sauv mini review

Dark in color with a nice varietal cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely cherry notes dominating. On the medium length finish the wine displays some tannins and acidity. This is a smooth well made, food friendly cab. I would give it an 88 or so. It will be coming out in Vintages on July 8th.

Here’s the data from the previous vintage from the LCBO web site:
