2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Tasting Notes

    BLACK FRIDAY PRICE $60 {regularly $75, member discounts do not apply}

    The nose of this wine is rich with earthy notes of cedar, redwood, mountain rock, graphite/pencil shavings, and saddle leather, opening to reveal brambly blackberry. Dark fruit qualities carry over on the palate with evocative notes of black currant and plum. Late on the palate is a complex vegetal fusion of green bell pepper, long pepper, and Saigon cinnamon, punctuated by herbaceous notes of thyme and tobacco leaf. Gripping tannins lead to a well-structured finish. Drink mid-2018 through 2035, will benefit from decanting.

    This wine was produced from two vineyards blocks on the east side of our property. Our ridgeside Terraces Block at elevation 1300 feet struggles to yield a few tons of sparsely clustered tiny berries with inky intensity. Our Far East Block, in a protected amphitheater, grows robustly and with minimal intervention. Between the two we have a comprehensive expression of Napa Valley hillside Cabernet Sauvignon the Brown way.
