The phenomenal 2015 vintage has delivered everything we love in a great Alexander Valley Cabernet—gorgeous aromas of cassis, black cherry, crème de mure and savory black olive, broad, silky tannins and complex earthy notes of tobacco, black licorice and earthy forest floor. On the palate, an inviting freshness adds poise and definition to the mix of sweet and savory flavors, carrying this classically structured wine to a long, multifaceted finish.
Fabulously complex and inviting, this wine offers classic layers of crème de cassis, blackberry, violets and licorice. Though bold and intense on the palate, fine-grained tannins add a lovely freshness and textural elegance to the voluptuous flavors. The finish is long and satisfying with nuanced hints of tar and graphite mingling with dark berry fruit.
