2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Deux Chevaux Vineyard 375ml
James Suckling – 92 Points
Aromas of chocolate sundae and ripe fruit follow through to a full body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Give it time to come together. Drink in 2019.
The initial aromas are meaty, and then they unfold to reveal crème de cassis and flourless chocolate cake, with a hint of matchstick and flint. The mouthfeel is round, with flavors of cheery pie and vanilla. The finish delivers firm, classic, Cabernet Sauvignon tannins.
