Embracing the concentration of the 2015 vintage from whence it comes, this Cabernet Sauvignon is dense, powerful, and compact. The long growing season engendered by our cool climate Sonoma vineyard means this Cab did not have to sacrifice acidity and freshness, however. Classic aromas of blackberries and black raspberry liquor are layered with sweet barrel oak and menthol. Mouth-filling, but more medium than full bodied, savory flavors of cacao nibs, dark fruits, and dried herbs are carried on the lush texture through an enduring finish.

Wine EnthusiastRobust in dried herb and graphite, this is a weighty, structured and tannic red blended with small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec. Classic elements of currant and clove add to the overall mix of vintage-appropriate density and power.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley offers slightly more purity and freshness, albeit with a lot less density. Cassis, currants, leafy herbs, and tobacco notes all flow to a medium-bodied effort that has nicely integrated acidity, moderate depth, yet solid balance. It has plenty of tannins, so give this a few years in the cellar, and I suspect it's going to keep for 10-15+ years. The blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged in 45% new French oak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and opens a little reticent to begin, giving way to a core of crème de cassis, baked plums and espresso plus hints of camphor and bay leaves. The full-bodied palate offers loads of black fruit and savory layers with a firm, chewy frame and background freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
