2015 Hindsight Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested late in October after 3 weeks of perfect Indian Summer ripening weather. Afternoon temperatures in the low 80’s with cool evenings in the high 40’s gave the grapes 3 additional weeks of flavor development, thicker skins for color and tannins, and less hydration for concentration of flavors and aromas.
The 2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon showcases flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, mocha, tobacco leaf and oak. This is a balanced wine with great weight upfront, a full mid-palate, and a long smooth finish. The core of dark fruit runs throughout the wine.
Aged 24 months in 40% new French oak. Ready to drink now but will age gracefully for the next 5-8 years.
