Descriptions
Aromas of cassis, ripe red cane berries, and warm vanilla beans, along with a hint of cedar draw you in, inviting that first sip. The palate entry is full and lush with juicy black plum, red currant, and a hint of dried cherries. The abundant fine-grained tannins give a full mouthfeel that is complimented by sweet vanilla notes mid-palate, and a bright acidity throughout. Leading into a warm, spicy, and persistent finish.

Vintage: 2015 was yet another in a line of great vintages. In terms of vintage character, it was largely defined by how early it was. Due to a very mild winter, bud break happened several weeks earlier than average which led to an early harvest: we were done before the end of September. The weather was very moderate during the majority of the growing season with a series of heat spikes post-veraison. That late season heat really got the flavors moving, pushing everything to nice full ripeness. We saw generally lighter yields in 2015, but that was no surprise after three large vintages.

Harvest: The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate-controlled vineyards in the Oakville AVA in the heart of the Napa Valley. The fruit is night-harvested, cluster-sorted by hand, crushed, then fermented in small tanks. All the fruit came in over the course of only 20 days this season; making for a very compact harvest.

Winemaking: Fermentation was carried out over a seven to ten-day period in small, temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at an average temperature of 80˚ F. After pressing and settling, the wine was transferred to small French oak barrels for 22 months of aging.

Winemaker tasting notes: Aromas of cassis, ripe red cane berries, and warm vanilla beans, along with a hint of cedar draw you in, inviting that first sip. The palate entry is full and lush with juicy black plum, red currant, and a hint of dried cherries. The abundant fine-grained tannins give a full mouthfeel that is complimented by sweet vanilla notes mid-palate, and a bright acidity throughout. Leading into a warm, spicy, and persistent finish.
