The 2015 bursts with bright, energetic aromas and flavors of fresh black cherry, black plum right from the tree, pomegranate, wet slate, peppercorn, lavender, and savory herbs. The flavors have long, beautiful length in the mouth and the wine's classic Stags Leap District tannins offer structure and promise for delicious things to come in the cellar.

Taut and leathery, this is a thickly tannic, incredibly structured and powerful wine, softened by 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec. Extracted black fruit is poised amongst earthy truffle, crushed rock and black pepper, the aromas and flavors integrated and built to age. Enjoy best 2025-2030.

Based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon (there's 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec), the 2015 One-Point Five is another full-bodied, powerful yet elegant wine from this estate. Giving up rocking notes of crème de cassis, graphite, smoke tobacco, and licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, tons of fruit and texture, remarkable purity, and a great finish. It's a quintessential Napa Cabernet that's going to put a smile on your face over the coming 15 years or more.

Strikingly complex and engaging, offering tiers of flavor, including dark berry, cedar, graphite and oak, presented in a style that lets the elements speak through the tannins. Drink now through 2030. 9,000 cases made.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a fabulous example of the year at its best. Super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, mint, rose petal and spice infuse this voluptuous, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Readers looking for a wine to drink with minimal cellaring will find much to admire in this sexy, racy Cabernet. Even with all of its up-front fruit, the 2015 has quite a bit of depth and tannin to support at least a handful of years of fine drinking.
