Winemaker Notes

Force Majeure's estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful but elegant, full-bodied wine that is grown primarily along the southwest ridge of the winery's vineyard, in soils that are deep and loamy but contain many small rocks of fractured basalt, concreted ash and even some granite from Missoula flood erratics. The vines produce small berries with bountiful flavor, concentration and intensity, but also a good degree of finesse, excellent structure and layers of complexity that will continue to develop during extended bottle aging for those who want to cellar and age their wines.


Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot


96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Like the Epinette cuvee, the 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is showing incredibly well from bottle. Checking in as a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it saw an extended maceration and spent 22 months in 85% new French oak. It has a beautifully fresh, focused bouquet of black currants, graphite, smoked earth and chocolate, as well as full-bodied richness, good acidity and fine, polished tannin that builds with time in the glass. It's a terrific Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.

91 points Wine Spectator

The aromas are light initially, with notes of cocoa, herb, barrel spice and cherry not yet fully ready to reveal their charms. The cherry and bittersweet chocolate flavors are backed by lightly grainy tannins that need some time to unwind. The wood is intense at present but there are good things underneath.
