Mission Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014

I went into this with a cynical sneer.  It’s been a long time since I purely enjoyed Mission Hill.  I find the breadth of their output like Mercedes Benz, trying to be all things to all people without just focusing on doing less, but very, very well.  Well I was surprised.

 

This has a lush, jammy, soft and comforting dark fruit hit on the tongue with a gentle leathery finish.  It drinks like many California reds but slightly less alcoholic and not quite the affront you might expect.  Professionals use words like generous and on a wine like this; extremely easy to the last drop.  You can pick it up from the vineyard for under $30 and on that note alone, highly recommended.

 

Price: Gifted.

 

Market Liquidity: Not every Stephen King is a hit, but when he hits they are big hits.
