90 Points, Wine & Spirits - A potent and gripping cabernet, this wine’s dark floral fruit and dry, mineral-tinged tannins gain intensity and edge from a little volatile acidity, apparent in the scent of flamed orange zest. The texture feels supple, integrating the drier elements into the wine’s floral power.
The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and dark, with an abundance of blackberry, cherry and dark plum alongside nuances of lifted violet, sweet cinnamon
and clove spice. On the palate, the dark berry fruits proliferate with blackberry, plum
and cassis, but there is also a beautiful savory quality exhibiting notes of leather, tobacco and earth, giving this Cabernet a classic old-world feel and elegance. Seamlessly integrated oak and refined tannins provide a smooth mouthfeel and add layers of complexity, all
wrapping up with a spicy lengthy finish. Incredibly approachable and pleasing upon release, this wine is sure to dazzle and pair well alongside many culinary treats.
