Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose is ripe with vibrant blackberry, raspberry and black cherry notes alongside nuances of violet, vanilla and sweet oak spices.

Flavours and Palate

The structured “Rutherford dust” tannins give this wine its signature fine cocoa powder texture and expansive mouthfeel, while balanced acidity from the fantastic growing season and lower yielding vintage provides concentration, depth and freshness on the finish.

California, USA

The USA’s most famous and productive wine region - and also one of its most popular tourist destinations. With its stunning scenery (undulating hills crisscrossed by vines, and awash with wildflowers) and vibrant, decadent food culture, it’s not surprising Napa Valley was named ‘World's Best Wine and Food Destination’ in the 2010 Travelers' Choice Awards.

A mild winter across California lead to early bud break in 2015 but limited rain and moderate temperatures throughout the growing season caused the overall length of the season to be consistent with years past. The yields in 2015 were slightly lower than the previous year, which lead to exceptional quality, resulting in a Cabernet with tremendous concentration of flavors, highly saturated color, and layers of complexity.
