96 points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "A regal wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Isole e Olena soars out of the glass with tremendous aromatic and palate intensity. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 has so much to offer. Once again, De Marchi crafted a Cabernet Sauvignon that exudes character. Today, the 2014 is vivid but also intensely saline and clenched. Another few years in bottle should do the trick. This fruit was brought in during the last week of October and first week of November, quite late, even by the standards of the year."
Stunning. Impeccably classy, proudly displaying its pure Cabernet heart in a stately fashion. I love it because it tastes exactly like Cab and it tastes exactly like Tuscany -- I can have both worlds. Gorgeous fruit purity, texture, and freshness allow it to be enjoyed at this early stage (enjoyed is an understatement). By far one of my favorite Cabernets we sell and for that matter, that I've ever tasted, Isole's Cab has also become a favorite of our discerning Cabernet-loving customers. World class. - Marcus
