Our 2015 Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon has impressive depth, power and complexity—perennial hallmarks of Lot 1—starting with the intense aromas of plum, black currant and Italian leather. The palate has striking power and breadth and is filled with notes of blackberry reduction, cherry liquor, toasted caramel and much more in a plush mouthfeel. The exceptionally long, polished finish evolves with layers of fruit and toasted oak. The fine tannins and outstanding balance of power and elegance will allow this wine to age for decades.

Broad-shouldered and dense, with very ripe waves of raspberry, plum and boysenberry reduction flavors coursing through, inlaid with singed vanilla, apple wood and sweet tobacco accents. Cuts a wide swath through the finish, with the fruit powering through in unison with the toast and a tug of loam. A big ‘un. Best from 2020 through 2030

This is a thick, concentrated expression of the grape that shows undeniable power and intensity. Crayon wax, cedar, black currant, black pepper and shapely tannins define its rich core. This can stand some time in the cellar; drink 2025–2030.
