2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON | NAPA VALLEY | OAKVILLE
Precocious and showy, the 2015 has striking similarity to young 2005 wines upon release. Graced with forward fruit, yet with great length and precision, ample pleasure and generosity can be found now with decanting. Great care was employed at harvest to sort and gently handle each cluster before fermentation, all worthwhile to achieve refined and plush tannins so evident in this bottling. Cabernet Sauvignon from this rocky site is alluring and energetic with notes of white chocolate, pomegranate, and forest floor. As in most of the recent drought years, Cabernet Franc has been the imposing architecture of the blend carrying a signature of sweet tobacco, rose petal and dried chrysanthemum. 200 cases 750 ML | Magnums | 3 Liter were bottled without fining or filtration.
