"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more exuberant and sexy, with awesome notes of blueberries, blackberries, incense, violets and unsmoked tobacco. This huge, unctuous, beauty has killer purity of fruit, gorgeous mid-palate depth, sweet, sweet tannin and the succulent, sexy style of the vintage front and center. Gaining depth and richness with time in the glass, this incredible Cabernet Sauvignon will be better with 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades."
