J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain District|
This blends the main variety with 16% Malbec and smaller pinches of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The resulting wine is robust and well built, softly structured and punctuated in flavors of bold red cherry and plum. Rich, it shows some restraint and ultimately balance, the fruit integrated with oak and tannin.
The baked berry pie flavors are compelling, with blueberry, blackberry and wild berry notes, turning supple and graceful. Impressive, offering drink-me-now allure and cellaring possibilities. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,200 cases made.
