Wine Advocate | Rating: 94Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sleeping Lady offers up intense creme de cassis, blueberry pie and dark chocolate notes with hints of smoked meat, incense, cigar boxes and charcoal. Concentrated and packed with black fruits and spice layers in the mouth, it has a beautiful, lively backbone and firm, grainy tannins to support, finishing long and savory.Drink Dates: 2017-2034Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
