2014 KO is a beautifully expressive wine both on the palate and in the bouquet. On the nose you’ll get notes of tar, leather, cigar, violets and dried herbs with dried cherries, blackberry and plums. On the palate, this full bodied wine shows red fruit, dried cherries, cranberries, strawberries and leather with a long finish.
Composition: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Touriga Nacional, 22% Mourvedre, 6% Tinta Amarela, 6% Tinta Cão
The 2014 vintage was one that saw some exceptional Bordeaux fruit. Cabernet can be difficult to ripen, and it is often one of the last things harvested which makes it susceptible to late summer rains which can dilute sugars and phenols in the grapes and cause disease. This growing season was favorable to Cabernet, however, making it a strong backbone for the 2014 KO and a wine that is unlike any other from that vintage or others.
