"A blend of 75.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.9% Merlot, 7.3% Petit Verdot, 6.1% Cabernet Franc and 1.6% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is deep garnet-purple colored and reveals open-knit, expressive cassis and baked plums scents with hints of pencil shavings, menthol, dark chocolate and damp soil plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, concentrated and giving mouth-filling black fruits and savory layers, it finishes with a provocative grainy texture. 15,069 cases produced." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Opaque, dark ruby in color, this wine expresses dark fruit aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant, and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, and a hint of tobacco. The sweet oak spice is well integrated, adding to the overall complexity. Full-bodied with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture, integrated tannins, and pleasant mouth feel, this cabernet is rich and opulent.
