2015 was a stellar vintage for Napa winemaking. A cool spring meant smaller grape clusters and resulted in lower yields than usual, while the quality of fruit was exceptional. Warm summer weather brought grapes to optimum ripeness before one of the earliest harvests in memory. The resulting wines show intense aromatics and complex fruit character.
This plush, seductive Cabernet opens with aromas of ripe cassis and blackberry layered with notes of toast, vanilla, allspice and clove. A lush palate showcases flavors of ripe fruit and complex oak notes, silken texture and a long, balanced finish.
