The 2014 Oliver's Blend is the tenth vintage released from Skipstone. Consistent with our approach for the past decade, the Oliver's Blend is assembled by first blending up to 20 small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon from our rocky hillside vineyard blocks - each contributing its unique profile developed throughout the vintage from the varied soils, exposures, and clonal selections. In 2014, the Cabernet Sauvignon was the complete package - offering exceptional richness and power, balanced by minerality and nerve - requiring only a 2% splash of our Merlot to round out the pallet. As is typical for the 2014 vintage, the fruit expression is powerful and exuberant with fine, silky tannins. The summer of 2014 was cooler than 2013, and largely uninterrupted by the heat spikes. Thanks to those cool conditions, the wines have retained fresh fruit and bright acidities.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Oliver's Blend is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (93% with 7% Merlot) aged in nearly three-fourths French oak for 18 months prior to being bottled. Loads of earthy, loamy soil notes intermixed with underbrush, blackcurrants, black cherries, tapenade and some subtle oak are present in this dense purple, full-bodied, muscular style of wine. Like most 2014s, it is already showing plenty of deliciousness and should continue to do so for at least another 15 or more years.
