The Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2015 vintage is inky purple in color with aromas of dense blackberry jam, cassis and balsamic followed by a layering complexity throughout the mouthfeel of supple, sweet tannins with expressive ripe plum, vanilla and rich black fruit.

Jeb DunnuckThe only 2015 I was able to taste from this estate (I couldn't visit due to the fires), the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Deeper and richer than the 2014 with gorgeous notes of black currants, plums, graphite, toasted spice and licorice, this beauty is full-bodied, supple and seamless on the palate, with fine, fine tannin and surprising freshness and purity. It's a beautiful, layered wine to drink over the coming 15-20 years.

Wine EnthusiastLeather, tobacco and smoky char define the opening of this full-bodied, rich wine, blended with 15% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc. Woody and structured, its fruit leans dark and plummy, ending on a touch of dark chocolate.

Wine SpectatorWell-structured if a bit weighty in tannins. The core shows extracted dark berry, spicy oak and dusty loamy earth notes, ending on a drying theme. Drink now through 2027. 23,600 cases made.

VinousThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine. There is good depth and density, but most of that happens at the outset, as the wine loses some of its persistence through the mid palate and into the finish. Ultimately, the shortcomings of the year can't be totally overcome. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later.
