Josh Greene, WINE & SPIRITS

“A potent and gripping Cabernet, this wine’s dark floral fruit and dry,mineraltinged tannins gain intensity and edge from a little volatile acidity, apparent in the scent of flamed orange zest. The texture feels supple, integrating the drier elements into the wine’s floral power.”

Viticulture

Viticulture

After three years of plentiful harvests, the 2015 vintage resulted in a less abundant crop, but the quality remained exceptional. The mild, dry spring conditions promoted an early bud-break and minimal heat during summer allowed the fruit to ripen at a steady pace through picking, which began a few days earlier than 2014. The drier-than-normal conditions contributed to the smaller berry size and low yields, resulting in wines with outstanding concentration and flavor, making the overall season ideal for producing Cabernet Sauvignon of wonderful quality.
