Notes from the Winemaker:
This gorgeous 2015 Cab is dense and concentrated, starting with very dark ruby color in the glass. Aromas are Napa Valley at its best“ layers of ripe berries, cherries, red currants, and toasty refined French oak accents. Open and expressive, with velvety and explosive flavors across the palate. Blackberry-like ripe Cab flavors with amazing silky textural tannins and a persistent long finish. Power packed concentration from this low production vintage. Already delicious upon release, and will surely be an appealing wine for collectors“ its powerful structure and rich flavors ensure this wine will be a favorite for years to come.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is also brilliant, with a smorgasbord of red and blue fruits, smoked tobacco, incense, Asian spices, and chocolate aromas and flavors. It doesn’t have the classic style of the 2014, yet it’s more exuberant and straight-up sexy on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied, velvety textured, nicely concentrated, and balanced, it’s another beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Heidi Barrett. Drink this any time over the coming 15+ years." (11/14/2019)

92 Points - Vinous Media:

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous, inviting wine. Blackberry jam, creme de cassis, gravel, game, smoke and dark spice are all pushed forward. Succulent and racy, with no hard edges, the 2015 offers plenty of near and medium term appeal. This flamboyant, deep Cabernet Sauvignon has a ton to offer." - Antonio Galloni (12/2018)
