Winemaker Notes

Beginning with a gorgeous nose of boysenberry, cherry, strawberry, cedar, sage, and licorice, this lush and lively Cabernet captures the rich diversity of Napa Valley. On the palate, the alluring fruit flavors are underscored by bright acidity, firm polished tannins, and notes of fig, licorice, and cinnamon that linger on the well-structured finish.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

COMMENTARY: Over the past four decades, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has solidified its position as one of the world's most important categories in the wine world. This feeling isn't a slight to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany, Piedmont and other highly visible regions and their ultra-premium wines. I am just saying this because so many consumers love the Napa Valley and can understand it easier than many wine growing areas. The 2015 Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with loads of black fruit, some oak, and even some boysenberries in its aromas and flavors. Its layered, satisfying, and crisp palate makes it a natural choice with a standing rib roast. (Tasted: May 11, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

This is made from grapes grown at Three Palms Vineyard, alongside other valley floor and mountain fruit, including 10% Merlot and smaller percentages of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Smooth, lush and robust in dark cherry and plum, it's fruit forward and full bodied, with considerable ripeness.
