Pellet Estate Pellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with dark cherry, plum, sweet French oak, mocha, licorice and spice. Pliant, supple and resonant, the 2015 offers terrific depth and persistence in a resonant, inviting style that holds considerable near to medium-term appeal. The 2015 finishes with substantial power, intensity and darkness, all of which add to its distinct personality.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard, like the Henry's Reserve, is a step up over the more mid-weight, elegant 2014. Offering up terrific notes of blackberries, blueberries, toasted spices, violets, and graphite, it stays tight and focused on the palate, with good acidity and ample tannin. It's not quite as broad and expansive as the Henry's Reserve, but offers a classic, high-quality style that's going to benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring and shine for a decade or more.
