The wine exhibits a deep garnet hue in the glass. Our first impression is WOW, just wow. Aromas are expansive and bright throughout - concentrated, ripe and layered. Strong aromatics of dark berry, cedar, spice, cherry, cinnamon and toasty French oak give complexity and opulent appeal. The 2015 was an early harvest producing very little crop, yet what was picked is spectacular. Across the palate it is a big wine, lush with gorgeous pure flavors and a long, persistent finish that brings to mind notes of warm cherry. Although still very young, the structure and balance of this wine makes it compelling to taste now and bodes well for age-ability. This will be one of the star vintages of the decade.
The ultra complex aroma profile of this wine exhibits layers of fresh white peaches, caramelized apricots, honeysuckle, orange blossom, subtle vanilla, and sweet spices. Flavors on the palate mirror white stone fruits, minerals, and exotic spices with a full body, vibrant acidity, and a long lingering finish.
The 2015 Eternity is a spectacular vintage! Opulent in every way, perfectly balanced, a velvety texture, firmly structured...words do not do it justice.
While both the Suckling Report and the Wine Advocate awarded this vintage of Eternity 95pts, at the end of the day, what matters most is that the 2015 Eternity is a vintage to celebrate the ordinary and the extraordinary. That is what an exceptionally beautiful wine is all about. From bud break to bottle, the ’15 Eternity responded beautifully to all the love it received. It was a short, difficult growing year. Yet, as it is often said: well-seasoned growers and winemakers, who deeply understand the collaboration, science and art of winemaking, make all the difference.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has a wonderfully playful symbiotic relationship between Mayacama valley floor character and Vaca mountainous structure, culminating in more complex character and refined elegance than the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Some notable aromas on the bouquet include fresh roasted coffee, blackcurrant, crème de cassis, luxardo cherries, perfume, fresh violet petals, dark cherry liqueur, and hints of forest floor, sage, freshly cut cedar chips, with an intriguing musky nuance. Upon entering the palate, oodles of dark fruit, blackcurrant, cassis, fresh rose petals, water chestnuts, and subtle hints of licorice expand into a luscious, long-lasting espresso crème brûlée finish. The mesmerizing complexities between the balanced, full-body character interlaced with the structured yet velvety tannins may cause frisson with certain individuals. Proceed with delight!
This gorgeous 2015 Cab is dense and concentrated, starting with very dark ruby color in the glass. Aromas are Napa Valley at its best - layers of ripe berries, cherries, red currants, and toasty refined French oak accents. Open and expressive, with velvety and explosive flavors across the palate. Blackberry-like ripe Cab flavors with amazing silky textural tannins and a persistent long finish. Power packed concentration from this low production vintage. Already delicious upon release, and will surely be an appealing wine for collectors - its powerful structure and rich flavors ensure this wine will be a favorite for years to come.
Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.
The wine is very elegant with aromas of apricot, peach, carmel and honey, is balanced by a bright acidity, nice weight mid-palate,with copious amounts of apricot and peach that lingers to a crisp finish.
The 2015 Riley’s Rows Chardonnay North Coast has an expressive nose that encompasses both tropical fruits and barrel notes. The vintage character means that this wine shows a riper fruit profile. Pear and stone fruits like peach and apricot predominate rather than the citrus notes we typically see in cooler years.
Classic notes of cherry and sweet grenadine with sustained French oak and plenty of vanilla on the nose, followed by a rich, fruit forward mouthfeel typical of the 2015 vintage. Very gentle tannins on the finish – an easy drinking and pleasing vintage awaits you!
As with other 2015 Cabernets, the Oakville is startling for its sheer size and weight. The older vines deliver classic black raspberry, licorice, espresso bean and crushed stones in the nose and on the palate. The tiny yields are responsible for the intensity of the color and structure this year. This beautiful wine should show well upon release, but a year or two (or a decade) of cellar time will help the wine show its best.
