Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

SKU 3377


2015 was an incredible growing year - especially for Cabernet Sauvignon, the focus of Doubleback. Balancing out the heat of the vintage, our later ripening vineyards - McQueen, Lefore, and Pepper Bridge - really shined bright and they represent the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon we have ever had in a Doubleback blend. Medium to deep ruby in color, this wine is expressive immediately with blackberry cobbler, cassis, and wild herbs. On the palate the wine has broad, mouth coating tannins, cocoa powder, minerality, and a fresh, balancing streak of acidity. Though expressive and enjoyable now, the warmth and strength of the vintage will age fabulously for years to come. Drink at cellar temperature.

Jeb DunnuckThe straight 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (there's 2% Malbec in the blend) comes from Walla Walla Valley and was brought up in 85% new French oak. This opaque purple-colored beauty offers terrific black currant and cassis-like fruit intermixed with classic tobacco leaf, damp earth, and crushed flower aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, and elegant, with a seamless texture that carries plenty of sweet tannins, give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar and it's going to keep for another 15-20 years. It's a beautiful, impeccably made wine.
