2014 Template, Napa Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Template is a new wine/blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Template is a little closed, revealing subtle notes of plums and crushed blueberries, cedar and toast plus a hint of baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich, soft and plummy on the palate, it has a good amount of depth and a long, spicy finish.
