Expressive and refined, in an appealingly zesty way, offering lively black cherry, cracked pepper and crushed stone accents that take on richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2023. 5,303 cases made.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of cassis, blackberry, chocolate and creamy new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and chewy, with plenty of juicy fruit and firm tannin. Give it a couple of years in the cellar to knit together, then follow it for the better part of a decade.
Being 100% varietal, blue-fruit aromas are at the fore, with notes of blueberry and huckleberry in front of spice-very unusual for Cabernet. The flavors are plump in style with firm tannins that don't quite seem to have fully ripened.
