2015 Cabernet Sauvignon "The Ranch"

Our “Ranch” Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in our Lost Orchard, Lower, and Brothers Vineyards, blended with Merlot and Petit Verdot – all estate fruit which comes together to create a powerful but approachable wine in a classic Bordeaux style.  Writing in Vinous, Antonio Galloni describes the '15 Ranch as "soft, racy and absolutely delicious. Even with all of its natural intensity, the 2015 retains striking freshness and nuance. Sweet red-toned fruit and floral notes give this gracious, mid-weight Cabernet an air of pure charm ..."  85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. 1,292 cases made.

Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Ranch has a brooding bouquet of black plums, cedar and violets. Dark fruit, anise and sage follow on the palate. The wine is seamless and rich supported by warm, chalky tannins. The Ranch is both indulgent and savory with a clean finish. It is made to be enjoyed immediately upon release and for the next 10 years.
