2014 Singer Cellars Song Cabernet Sauvignon
94pts - Christopher Sawyer “Sommelier to the Stars”
Fruit-forward, smooth and balanced, Singer Cellars wines are Bordeaux varietals and
blends produced from Napa Valley grapes.
We practice the old-world winemaking method of bâtonnage, or stirring the lees.
This process enhances the wine’s structure, gives it extra body, increases the aromatic
complexity, and produces a velvety rich mouthfeel.
Each wine ages for up to 20 months in French oak barrels. 40% is new, with the
balance in used French oak barrels. Drinkable upon release, our wines benefit from
additional cellar aging, which allows the wine’s complexities to develop and reveal themselves.
Marked by a long growing season in Napa Valley, the expressive wines from the 2014 vintage have the dual advantage of being approachable when young and layers of complexity that allow them to be cellared for more than a decade. One of these delicious examples is the Singer Cellars 2014 Song Cabernet Sauvignon made by boutique winemaker Barry Singer.
With a deep opaque color, this elegant red wine opens up with sultry aromas of ripe berries, red fruits, leather, tobacco, and allspice. On the palate, the generous flavors of briary blackberry, dark plum, boysenberry and chocolate are complemented with a burst of vibrant acidity, firm tannins, and a silky texture.
For food lovers, this is a great wine to compliment everything from gourmet Mac & Cheese, grilled salmon or Ahi tuna with espresso rub; to bison burgers, roasted lamb and juicy steaks drizzled with blue cheese; or to simply serve with a flourless chocolate cake or truffles at the end of the meal.
Singer Cellars showcases Barry Singer’s passion for classic Bordeaux varietal blends. In 2004 Barry pursued a lifelong dream and began making wine. Fast-forward to today, and Singer Cellars is garnering awards and recognition for his silky, accessible yet robust red wines.
