2015 Sill Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
Our 2015 très Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted utilizing classic, Premier Grand Cru Bordeaux-style techniques from grapes grown and harvested from superior Rutherford, Napa bench vineyards. Its beautiful deep ruby color, represents a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec and 1% Petite Verdot. If wines were actors, perhaps it might be described best as having the charm, style, finesse and elegance of George Clooney. This suave wine possesses hints of blueberries and blackberries, cream-tinged cassis, silkiness of oak given the elegant nature of this wine, with pepper on the finish, a lovely mouth-feel and wonderful length on the finish. As with the nose, the palate feels polished, with lovely tannins, thus drinking very nicely now, but with patience of 4-10 years of “opening” will achieve true brilliance. Described as “absolutely exceptional” it will drink well upon release and will continue to age gracefully over many years. CWSA Gold Medal recipient.
