The 14th vintage of Kingpin Cabernet Sauvignon leads with aromas of black fruits, frangipane, mushrooms, sweet oak, minerals, and cigar box. Firm, silky tannins frame rich black cherry, dark chocolate, roasted herbs and minerals. Polished and sleek, this vintage will only evolve many years to come.
Food pairing: Grilled New York steak with gorgonzola butter, Gaga’s stewballs and angel hair pasta
Movie pairing: The Godfather
Launched in 2006, Kingpin celebrates the raw power and intensity of Red Mountains's iconic Klipsun Vineyard. Although we have no definitive conclusion on its ultimate life span due to the fact that we have only made it for 10 years or so and have none even beginning to peak, we suspect this is a wine that can be enjoyed for at least 30 years, if not many more.
