The 2015 Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the intensity of the vintage. The aromas are heady notes of blackberries, spice, and the classic Rutherford mix of cocoa and sage. A dense yet lively palate, with a complex core of cassis, blackberry, plums, and sage mingled with hints of mineral, floral, and citrus peel. The 2015 Helms provides a bolder, richer expression of the vineyard, but maintains a balance and nimble feel on the palate. A powerful and compelling wine in its youth, yet with great potential to develop through 2037.

Just about pure perfection, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard comes from vines around the estate, just outside of Rutherford, which were planted in 1997. Sensational notes of crème de cassis, burning embers, bay leaf, and graphite all flow to a full-bodied 2015 that has a deep, layered, multi-dimensional texture that's hard to describe. With building structure and a beautiful floral character that emerges with time in the glass, perfect balance, and a huge finish, this quintessential Napa Cabernet will benefit from a few years of bottle age and cruise for 3-4 decades. Bravo!

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard has a gregarious nose of freshly crushed black currants, black berries and mulberries with touches of red roses, Indian spices, dried mint and unsmoked cigars. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and elegantly styled, it delivers tons of black berry and spicy layers with a fine-grained backbone and very long, lively finish. Bottled in June 2017, 225 cases were made.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard is intensely aromatic and lifted, with expressive floral and minty notes that lead into a core of bright but intense red stone fruit. Racy and luscious on the palate, the 2015 is showing very well today.
