Napa Valley Fine Boutique Wines

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mee Lane, Rutherford


The 2015 vintage is a keystone of a growing vertical series of vintages we have produced from the noted Mee Lane family vineyard in the world class Rutherford AVA of Napa Valley.  This single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is being produced with precise hand-crafting in the Bordeaux style with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that reflects longer time to develop fuller phenolics yet maintain acid balance on the vine due to its unusual row orientation and shading in a typically hotter AVA for Napa Valley Cabernet.  .

A complex, plush and full bodied, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon with ample layers of bright cassis, succulent black fruit, hints of mocha, tobacco, sweet vanilla whiskey, leather and warm toasted spices.  Substantial, yet supple tannins round out this plush, well balanced wine with a remarkably long, complex finish.  Stylish, classic collector's Napa Cabernet. Decant 1-10 years, enjoy 20+ years.
