AMONG THE TOP 5% of ALL WINES in the WORLD and MADE WITH ORGANIC GRAPES! The 2014 Lateral Red Blend was inspired by St. Emilion wines in the heart of Bordeaux, and influenced by the interplay and tension created between Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Proprietor and Winemaker Marty Mathis, whom you might recognize from his high-scoring Kathryn Kennedy wines, decided to showcase how each of these two iconic grapes can harmonize to complement yet contrast each other, in a way that’s different from other Bordeaux style blends. He’s done so with carefully sought-out vineyards, primarily located in Coombsville AVA, Los Carneros AVA, and Yountville AVA, and his 2014 is showing stunning delineation, depth and focus. Underlining notes of spice box, crushed black cherries, chocolate mint and rose buds leave a long lasting impression.

2014 LATERAL “NAPA VALLEY” PROPRIETARY RED BLEND
Tasting Notes from Lateral Winery: “Darkest Lateral in recent years. Alluring and expressive nose of smashed black cherries, pencil lead, warm earth aromas that feature hints of spices such as cedar wood box, dried rose petals and mint candy.Rich black cherry in the mouth. This wine has that “wow factor” with deep, rich and complex fruit flavors and a smooth satisfying texture with a lower tannin leading to a lithe and silky finish. Begs for “big boy” food pairing without a need for cellaring.”
