2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mee Lane, Rutherford

From Rutherford, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mee Lane is one of the gems in the lineup and boasts fabulous purity and elegance, as well as full-bodied, concentrated notes of blackcurrants, cassis, camphor and spicy oak. Aging in 100% new French oak, this impeccably balanced beauty is going to keep for 15-20+ years.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mee Lane is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, it is another juicy, grapy and richly fruity, fat and unctuously textured Cabernet Sauvignon that is evidence of the low yields and very ripe Cabernet fruit that was brought in from this low-yielding vintage. This should turn out to be stunning once it develops more delineation and personality

A big and rich red with full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Very generous and a little overdone this year.

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Steffensen Vineyard, Coombsville

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Steffensen Vineyard seems significantly more concentrated than the 2013, with dense blackberry and blueberry fruit, sweet tannin, and the sucrosity that is a hallmark of this vintage. This looks to be greatly superior to its sibling from 2013.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Steffensen Vineyard is 100% varietal and comes from a site in the cooler Coombsville region of the valley. It reveals the standard saturated purple color that’s common in this vintage as well as perfumed and lifted notes of crème de cassis, plums, crushed violets, incense and licorice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and pure, it has plenty to love as well.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Steffensen Vineyard, Coombsville

Aromas of dark berries, bark and dark chocolate. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Very polished and pretty. Hard not to drink now but needs two or three years of bottle age.

"Distinctive, with loam, tobacco, sage and menthol notes out front, followed by a solid core of mulled black current and warmed fig fruit. Keeps the old-school edge through the finish, ending with a charcoal thread. For fans of the rugged style. Best from 2022 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
