2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
Our fifth blockbuster Cabernet release for the fall season!
Deeply extracted and opaque in the glass, this wine has a gorgeous nose of pure cherry essence, blackberry compote, vanilla bean, mocha, rich black soil, and dusty, floral-tinted minerality. If “umami” had a nose, this is what it would smell like. Liquid silk on entry, with pure red fruits and perfectly integrated tannins - this is an incredibly beautiful wine with layers of complexity already revealing themselves. Simply fantastic.
Style: Full, Smooth
Flavors: Currant, Raspberry, Tannins
The westside Rutherford bench produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, with a classical combination of grace and power. Sourced from an iconic Rutherford winery, Lot 615 comes direct from triple digit $ program and was made with no expense spared by an all-star winemaking team. From an estate block of twenty-year-old Cabernet vines humming at peak performance at the southern edge of Rutherford, this is indeed hallowed ground, surrounded by To Kalon to the south, Staglin to west and Cakebread to the east. An opulent, stunning wine with incredible pedigree.
