The 2015 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon has generous aromas of cocoa powder, black tea, chocolate fudge and currants. The wine has a rich entry with robust flavors of black fruit and spice along with dusty tannins. The structured tannins, rich fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine's ability to age. Enjoy with barbecued Tri-tip, mustard-rubbed pork loin, parmesan and black pepper pasta (Cacio e Pepe), or crispy gnocchi with brown butter and sage.

Wine SpectatorJuicy and vibrant in feel, featuring a mix of blueberry, raspberry and red currant fruit flavors that play well with the light graphite, bergamot and floral nuances. The solid backdrop of roasted apple wood is well-integrated. Nicely put together, with acidity as much as tannins supporting the finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. 2,550 cases made. J.M.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an estate-grown, 100% varietal wine that showcases a soft, broad experience that's approachably rich and well-balanced. Perfumed in cherry, cassis and vanilla, it has a subtle, savory character on the midpalate of dense smoky oak and firm structure.
