AXR 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$70.00

Winemaker Notes
The 2015 AXR Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep, dark cherry with touches of magenta and Ferrari red. On the nose, beautiful spice like thyme, rosemary, cedar, peaches and plums with bubble bath, chocolate, black truffle lingering on pine needle and dark honey. Round dense entrance on the palate, evolving on a velvety fruity palate lingering on freshness of tannins with touches of Mirabelle plum, red apple pie, pears and mocha.

95 Points James Suckling:
“A dense and seamless red with lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Full body and firm, seamless tannins. Bright and vivid fruit. This is one to sit back and sip through the night.”

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck:

“Cut from the same cloth, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is also beautiful, with similar black and blue fruits, dried violets, graphite, and Christmas spice aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, opulent and sexy, with sweet tannin, it too shows its vintage nicely in its slightly more ripe, exuberant, exotic style. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years.”

92 Points Wine Enthusiast:

“This is a classically elegant, structured wine, subdued in tannin and oak. It sings a song of savory intrigue, from tobacco, cedar and clove to currant and cassis. It offers flavor and texture within quiet interludes of integrated ripeness.”

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with crème de cassis, plum preserves and cedar notions with suggestions of Indian spices and balsamic. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and spicy in the mouth, it has a solid structure of chewy tannins and a long, berry preserves-laced finish.”

91 Points Wine Spectator:

“Offers a mix of juicy dark berry, anise, cedar, gravel and spice flavors, ending with firm, ripe tannins. The touch of woody bitterness is nothing to worry about and should subside with time.”
