Christopher Tynan Wines Meleagris Gallopavo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Christopher Tynan Wines|
Showing beautifully, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Meleagris Gallopavo Vineyard comes from a site on Spring Mountain and older vines, brought up all in French oak. This majestic, full-bodied, powerful Cabernet flirts with perfection and reveals a saturated purple hue as well as fabulous notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, chocolate, green tobacco, graphite, and crushed rocks. With flawless balance and ultra-fine tannins, it has a rare mix of sexy, ripe fruit and an almost Old World sense of structure and purity. It’s going to evolve for 30 years or more.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Meleagris Gallopavo Vineyard is a little closed and broody to begin, giving way to notions of licorice, tar, Indian spices and camphor with a core of crème de cassis, plum preserves and blueberry compote. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers retrained black fruits and earthy layers with a firm, chewy frame and a long savory finish.
