"Fans of old-school California Cabernet will want to pay close attention to these new releases from Star Lane. Winemaker Tyler Thomas has done an extraordinary job of bringing out all the best qualities of this Happy Canyon site. Quite simply, I was blown away by what I tasted. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Star Lane Vineyard is bold, pungent and bursting with fruit. Deep and unctuous in texture, but with considerable aromatic lift, the 2014 offers a terrific expression of Happy Canyon. Black cherry, blackberry, grilled herbs, menthol, sage and licorice infuse the rich, inviting finish."
