67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Only 92 cases produced!

Denise and Brett Isenhower selected only the best barrels of each varietal to create the 2014 Children's Reserve Cuvee.

Tasting notes

Dark red/black hue with a vibrant red rim.  Fresh aromas of red currant, cherry, vanilla, and lavender with hints of blueberry, rosemary, and a slight earthy note.  Entry into the mouth is very pleasing with an initial plush and smooth texture that builds in intensity.

Reminiscent of climbing a hill that gradually becomes steep, the mid palette is very fresh and intense.  The 2014 Children's Reserve Cuvee has balance without over-the-top richness.  It shows restraint while still carrying considerable weight.  The finish has fine-grained tannins that pleasantly persist.

Other notes

The goal of the Children's Reserve Cuvee is to create a unique Isenhower Cellars' Bordeaux Blend. 67% is Cabernet Sauvignon from Seven Hills Vineyard block 14.  Seven Hills produces a profound and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon.  17% is Petit Verdot from Dionysus Vineyard.  Petit Verdot adds a lavender note and provides mid palette intensity.  The remaining 15% is Cabernet Franc clone 214 from Dineen Vineyard.  The Cabernet Franc adds notes of cherries and smooths out the intensity of the Children's Reserve Cuvee.
