Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

SKU 086891080062


The Cabernet Sauvignon is dazzling in the top 2015 vintage. It is medium in body but full in character, charm and structure. With air, notes of cassis, mint, baked plums and liquorice unfold on the nose, leading to a richly-fruited palate. Hints of dried herbs and beef stock add complexity and lure to the finely textured, fruit-coated tannins.

Wine Spectator Fleshy and inviting, showing layers of cassis, raspberry and blackberry paste inlaid with anise, singed apple wood and mint notes. Nice charcoal frame on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023. 3,550 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastEDITOR’S CHOICE - While this is currently slightly tight and closed, it shows the structure and elements to present a complete and well-balanced wine with a little time. Scents of charred plum skin, dark chocolate, cigar box and roast beef dance in the bouquet, while the bold, firm palate offers flavors of black fruit skin, cassis and char. Drink 2019-2022.
