2014 Mario Bazan Cellars RAMA Cabernet Sauvignon
After working for Joseph Phelps and other prestigious wineries, Mario Bazan joined Robert Mondavi Winery in 1979 as a vineyard laborer and tractor driver. With his diligent work ethic fueling his thirst for knowledge in the vineyard, Mario advanced through the ranks and was ultimately placed in charge of such iconic vineyards as Opus One and To Kalon. He remained at Robert Mondavi for sixteen years until moving on to the historic Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in 1995. There he further developed his skills while working with Warren Winiarski, Michael Silacci and Julia Winiarski for three fulfilling years. Stag’s Leap was Mario’s last stop before realizing his entrepreneurial dream of owning his own vineyard management company.
Exuberant fresh raspberry and blueberry aromas are matched with equal intensity on the palate along with some chocolate and black raspberry. The tannins are soft and the wine round and juicy with plenty of black currant. This medium bodied Cab has excellent balance and a delicious finish.
95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petite Sirah
