Fisticuffs Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The latest release of Fisticuffs will really knock your socks off! Rob Lawson has been making stunning wines under various “cult” Cabernet labels such as Ghostblock, Mirror, Pahlmeyer and Kapcsandy for many years and did not skip a beat with the stunning 2012 vintage. For those who dream of big and expensive Cabernets and don’t want to pay the big bucks… I have got news for you! This is a wine that tastes a lot more expensive than its price point! This wine is the real deal!
The Wine: Fisticuffs elicits classic Napa Cabernet characteristics. It has a dark ruby color with tantalizing aromas of dark chocolate, cinnamon, espresso beans and black cherries, leading to a concentrated palate of blackberry, black raspberry and cassis. The tannins are fine grained and velvety, providing a full bodied wine with a lingering finish of baking spices, vanilla and black cherry. Well balanced and delicious, this Cabernet is perfect for your summer barbeque or your winter beef stew. It should age well over the next 10 years – but why wait?
