Notes from the Winemaker
The color of a Burmese ruby, the 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon even in its appearance has an exuberant nature. On the nose find wild elderberry, black currant, and tobacco. Pure, delineated flavors of ripe blueberry, graphite, olive, sage, thyme and sea salt provide for an ever evolving experience on the palate. Fine-grained tannins, balanced acidity and a richly intense texture persist through the very long finish. Exquisite with grilled rib eye, pasta Bolognese, or a delicate beef carpaccio. Serve at 50°-55° F.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (containing splashes of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) opens with expressive crushed plums, mulberries and cassis with touches of dark chocolate, baking spice and black soil. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with approachable, spicy black fruit, framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long with a pleasant herbal lift. 5,899 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Dec 2017)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is gorgeous. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, and leather are all front and center in this lush, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next decade." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2018)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Elegant and refined, though deeply tannic. The core of dark berry, licorice, loamy, gravelly earth, cedar and tobacco flavors gives this depth and structure. Drink now through 2029. 5,899 cases made." — JL (Nov 15, 2018)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Freshly picked blackberries, dark plums, licorice, iodine, oyster shell and chocolate shavings. Medium to full body, fresh acidity, fine tannins and a mineral finish. Drink now." - (23 May, 2018)
