2015 Laki's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Laki's Vineyard, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
Releasing a new wine is a unique chance to pause and reflect on how far we've come and where we'd like to go next. The 2015 growing season was both challenging and exciting. Erratic weather in the spring made it hard for the delicate new growth to transform into fruit, and by autumn, we found ourselves with a small crop of gorgeous and richly concentrated clusters. This hallmark wine is an accurate reflection of the vintage — strong, assertive and lovely while being limited in quantity. Its ruby red color and aroma of holiday spices and red winter fruits evoke joyful memories. On the palate, this wine mesmerizes with the elegance of cranberry, pomegranate, and brandied cherries while it displays the graceful power and structure of its refined tannins. Its lingering fragrance and taste will hold your attention, persisting long after you've set down your glass. Stored properly, this wine will soften slowly over time, opening up even more as a reward for your patience.
