2015 Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, 6 pack in Wood Box
Our Grand Vin was sculpted in a vintage where only the smallest of clusters and berries were produced by the hillside vines. That chiseled concentration is reflected in its tightly wound character. Youthful and primary, the nose on the fledgling 2015 Poetry is all crushed rock and cool slate. There are pretty violets among the mineral aromas with black currant, lavender, and spice box notes unfurling out along the bouquet. The summer blackberry and licorice flavors pour over the palate in a well delineated fashion and persist long after each taste. This wine tastes like it will last forever.
