Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley delivers notions of cassis, plum preserves, redcurrants and black cherries with touches of eucalyptus, violets and cedar. Full-bodied, the palate is beautifully concentrated without heaviness, sporting firm, fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing long and savory.

Du Mol's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is plump, juicy and open-knit, all qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. A rush of bright red cherry, plum, pomegranate, mint, wild flowers and chocolate meld together. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 offers a good bit of freshness in its aromatics. I would give the wine a year or two in bottle to fully come together. Today, the new oak is a bit prominent. The Napa Valley Cabernet is a blend of fruit from Meteor, Reve and Ballard.

Released in January of this year, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a deep, Saint-Estèphe-like (for some reason I always find these Old World comparisons in Andy’s wines) character in its pure, deep black and blue fruits, graphite, and lead pencil aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, terrific freshness, and a building sense of minerality, it’s certainly approachable today, yet is going to evolve gracefully for two decades or more.
