Aromatics of blackberry jam, electric lingonberry torte, grilled bread, cinnamon, clove, dark chocolate and a deep minerality set the stage.
The palate does what only Napa can do, with a layered, sweet, unctuous profile and plentiful, fine tannins. The finish features a panoply of flavors that seemingly go on forever.
The last of our 2015's to be released and perhaps the most powerful. The extra time in bottle has brought this beauty into a state of perfect equilibrium. A consistently warm year in which Cabernet thrived, turned out some of the most concentrated wines of the century. This is 100% from the Kenefick Ranch, Block 7, immediately across the road from Eisele Vineyard, south of Calistoga.
A mix of clones 191, 314 and 7 increase complexity.
Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Aged in 100% new French Oak for 12 months.
