YOUNTVILLE ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015
Our 2015 might fool you into thinking it is going to be well-behaved with its floral, black raspberry entry. However, the aromatics just keep flowing with salted caramel, cocoa powder, cream soda, toasted nuts, vanilla, tobacco leaf… should we keep going? Ripe blackberry flavors are silky and bathed in rich oak to complement the nose. Powerful tannins, for which our Yountville Estate is known, allow this to be a perfect cellar selection. Wine-braised lamb shank served with roasted winter vegetables would provide a richness to soften the grippy tannin finish.
