Rich, smoky oak and plump dark berry, mocha, cedar and sage flavors form an enticing mouthful, supported by a supple, caressing texture, ending long and full. Drink now through 2030 . RP91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate A barrel sample made up of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of cedar, earth, and sage with blackberries, mulberries, and spice box suggestions.

CG90 Connoisseurs' Guide

 

7% Merlot; 6% Cabernet Franc; 2% Malbec; 1% Petit Verdot. Following hard on the heels of the very successful 2014 version, this tasty offering again earns full commendation for its rich and ripe approach coupled with more than adequate fruit, smoky hints of barrel and an intriguing whiff of bacon. It is full on the palate and somewhat tannic, but not inappropriately so, and has the stuffing to stand up well to the half dozen years of age that it needs to come fully into its own. For the nonce, it is more than capable of serving well with dishes like standing rib roast or a garlicky leg of lamb. And while it does not quite garner our Good Value imprimatur, it is decently priced in today’s market for Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose, this wine has notes of sweet vanilla, pepper, and spice followed by blackberry, strawberry, and berry pie. On the palate, the wine is round and full-bodied with notes of red fruit and bright acidity. This wine will continue to age well for at least 10 years.
