The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a deep garnet-purple color with a crème de cassis, plum preserves and balsamic-scented nose with hints of dried herbs, cedar and black olives. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth with a velvety texture, it's spicy on the finish.
Woody cedar, toffee and coffee highlight a soft, richly concentrated core of full-bodied power and brawny tannin in this reserve-level wine. Black fruit has a smoky edge of toast and oak and is intensely concentrated.
