Winemaker Notes: The color is dark and opaque, with a hint of violet edges. Initially expressing floral (violet and iris) aromatics, the fruit characteristics (blueberries and fig) become dominate. Opulent on entry, the 2015 builds richness and volume while keeping a vibrancy on the palate, even a hint of playfulness. Focus comes form natural acidity, while the pleasing balance originates from the fruit. The 2015 finishes with energy, a mineral edge, and sweet tannins. While pleasing at release, expect the 2015 to gain in harmony and complexity over the next 4-12 years.

Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

Jeb Dunnuck – 98pts
Jeb Dunnuck - “The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's Estate is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 21 months in 97% new French oak. This beauty just jumps from the glass with its crème de cassis, liquid violet, lead pencil, chocolate and graphite. Rich, concentrated, gorgeously balanced, opulent, and heavenly in just about every way, it gives the Estate Cuvee a run for its money and is more than worth your time and money.”

Robert Parker – 94pts
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - “A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's gives a deep garnet-purple color and delivers a pleasantly meaty nose of beef drippings and charcuterie with underlying baked cherries, red and black currant notions and a waft of cigar boxes. Full-bodied and firmly structured with chewy tannins and compelling freshness, the palate features loads of savory black and red fruit flavors and a nice long finish.”


Wine Spectator - "This is full of boysenberry, fig and blackberry compote flavors, laced with licorice root and roasted apple wood notes, all carried by a swath of loamy grip through the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
