2015 Celani Family Vineyards 'Ardore’ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 3L
From the Winery: The 2015 Ardore is made from a meticulous selection of 10 barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon made from the most exceptional vineyard sites in Napa Valley’s Coombsville AVA. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels, Ardore is never fined nor filtered.
This is beautiful and elegant wine is perhaps the finest Ardore ever produced. The bouquet is extraordinary with massive aromatics of ripe black raspberries, tree-ripened plums, elderberry, boysenberry, crème de cassis and fresh wildflowers. Subtle notes of sandalwood, tobacco and new suede add further dimension. The palate is hugely concentrated with an explosion of exotic berry flavors that compliment the abundant yet supple tannins leading through a graceful, lasting finish. The 2015 Ardore wine is quite approachable and delicious now, but will age effortlessly over the next 30 years. - Mark Herold
Vinous - "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Ardore is another stunner. It is also the finest wine I have ever tasted from Tom and Vicki Celani. Inky, dense and explosive, the 2015 is remarkably vivid for such a big wine. Soft, silky tannins add to the wine's sheer appeal. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender and rose petal are some of the many nuances that are pushed to the foreground in this deep, unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon. The purity of the flavors is simply striking."
