2015 Estate Cuvée - Cabernet Sauvignon

Jeb Dunnuck, December 2017

97 Points

“The 2015 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard is the Margaux of the lineup with its perfumed floral, spice-box, black cherry and currant-driven aromas and flavors. It has an understated elegance, full-bodied richness, a beautiful sweetness of fruit, and a supple, sexy texture that makes it already impossible to resist. Showing a kiss of oak on the finish, give bottle 3-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades."

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cuvee covers every inch of the palate with layers of dark, mineral-infused fruit, crushed rocks, violets and tar. The 2010 doesn’t have any of the early accessibility or pure sensuality of the 2009, instead it is a big, structured wine that calls for cellaring. I don’t see the 2010 giving much pleasure before age ten. Readers who can wait will be rewarded with a spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate - Antonio Galloni
