The 2015 vintage was early, light and of exceptional quality, especially with cabernet sauvignon. The season began with a very mild winter with Little rain.Late season warmth in august and september brought an early and compact harvest resulting in exceptional flavor development and balance. 2015 is certainly a vintage that will age gracefully and is marked by wines that express great concentration and persistence.
The fruit for our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon hails from some of the best sub-appellations of Napa Valley with 66% from Atlas Peak, 26% Howell Mountain and 6% Napa Valley. These mountain appellations provide a bold, concentrated, and more complex Cabernet due to the rockier soils and exposure to elements that stress the vines.
