2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Farmstead
Cassis, dusty dark chocolate covered blueberries, black olives and dried herbs showcase the classic aromas of this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is fruit forward with cassis and layered red and blue fruits. The wine is soft and juicy on the entry and is followed by chewy tannins in the mid palate and a lick of sweet oak tannin on the finish. This wine rewards cellaring for up to 10 years.”
An early bud break, one of the longest flowering periods in years, and a long growing season produced a vintage that shines in quality. Spring started fast and an early bloom was met with a dip in temperature, wind and rains, which slowed the development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of extremely well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest in September.
