On the nose, classic butterscotch, crème brûlée, asian pear and cantaloupe combine with notes of jasmine and green cardamom. Bold flavors dance across the palate with crushed rocks and savory spices balancing tropical fruit, vanilla and macadamia nut flavors. Smooth and creamy across the mid-palate, the 2016 vintage has seamless integration, a great balance of oak and fruit resulting in a fresh finish.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our estate vineyard is planted on gravelly-to-clay loam soils using low-vigor (101-14) rootstock, on high density, 4’ x 6’ vine spacing. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are planted in three distinct vineyard blocks: Tyson’s block is planted entirely to clone #337, a highly regarded Bordeaux clone (small dense berries with great complexities); Marleigh’s block is planted to clone #4 (strong flavor intensity and spice); and our Mud’s Kitchen block is planted to Clone #7 (intense fruit character).
Aromas of black-currant, blackberry, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, mocha, lavender, forest floor and cinnamon fill the glass. The palate displays dark fruit with great concentration and loads of layers and spices. Rich and inviting with a plush mid-palate and great length, this wine is very approachable now but has the depth and power that will allow it to age gracefully for the next 10 to 15 years.
