2014 Hayfork Cabernet Sauvignon Antonio Galloni Review

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lewelling Ranch is powerful, dense and also

compact. This is an especially dark wine for the year, with plenty of muscle

and depth. There is no shortage of intensity, but the 2014 comes across as

raw and not fully put together. There is plenty of potential, even if the

2014 doesn't quite have the balance of the very best Hayfork Cabernets.

Rating: 91

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Field Select opens with striking aromatics

redolent of graphite, scorched earth, smoke, leather, tar and black

cherries. The flavors are bold and incisive in a wine that is built on a sense

of masculine strength. In 2014, Haley Wight opted for a high percentage of

Petit Verdot (12%) and that comes through in the wine's pure power. The

2014 Field Select is a total knock-out and also one of the under the radar

gems of the vintage.
