Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Red Wine Innovent is a little closed at this youthful stage, revealing notes of roses, blackberries and cassis over notions of bay leaves, spice box and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is taut and firmly structured, yet approachable, with generous fruit and nice ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and lively.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate (91+)

A Bordeaux-style blend, Innovant captures the elegance and distinct character of Sonoma County terroir. Carefully selected lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from our Alexander Valley vineyards offer aromas of intense blue fruits, cola, and dusty red raspberry. Flavors of savory nutmeg and spices combine effortlessly with a silky mouthfeel and long tannins while mountain fruits complement the bright acid of this wine. Winemaker Notes
