ROBERT PARKERBlended of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, sourced from six vineyards, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a medium to deep garnet-purple color and nose of red and black currants, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of pencil shavings, cinnamon stick, cloves and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has great freshness, with the vibrant, open-for-business fruit well supported by ripe, grainy tannins, finishing with good length.
VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon clearly shows the struggles of the vintage. Unusually dark, jammy and powerful, the 2015 is very ripe and at times alcoholic. It will be interesting to see how the wine reacts to the final period of its aging in barrel.
