“2015 [Vintage] was absolutely over the top. One of the finest!”

- Winemaker Richard Arrowood

 
Blended of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard offers pronounced black currants, black cherries and wild blueberry scents with hints of mulberries, Chinese five-spice, tilled soil, bay leaves and tapenade. Very big, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it completely coats the palate with black fruits and savory layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with great persistence.”

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley is a beautiful blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot that spent two years in new and used French oak barrels. Cassis, currants, dried tobacco, and lead pencil notes all emerge from the glass and it's layered, medium-bodied, and seamless on the palate. Possessing fine tannin and terrific overall balance, it's going to keep for 10-15 years."
