More than our flagship Cabernet, it is the spirit of the estate personified. Named in memory of my grandfather, Gandona, which translates to "humble man," Gandona always consists of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the highest and steepest blocks on the property, which consistently articulate the most profound and striking expression of our terrior, both emphatic and eloquent, like Gandona.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is very deep purple-black in color with a crushed plums, blackberries and black cherries nose with hints of dried herbs and smoked meats plus menthol and chocolate box notes. The full-bodied palate is rich, finely textured and fresh, with great purity and length. 400 cases were produced.

Jeb DunnuckMoving to the two 2015s, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Gandona is the grand vin and, as always, is all Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 21 months in 75% new French oak. It has a more flamboyant, voluptuous style compared to the more classically styled 2016 and offers loads of cassis and plum fruits, full body, building tannins, and complex notes of licorice, dried flowers, and loam soil. It’s going to evolve nicely for 20-25 years.

Wine SpectatorCombines power with purpose, offering a mix of smooth-textured dark berry flavors, spicy, cedary oak and touches of herb, green olive and gravel. Excellent, but stalls near the finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. 400 cases made.
