The 2010 Joel Gott 815 Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of plum, raspberry and cherry cola with hints of anise, cocoa, leather and dried herbs. Bright acidity on the front of the palate leads to a complex mid-palate and soft tannins on the finish.
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has complex aromas of blackberries, black cherries, mocha and dried flowers. The flavors are elegant with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. The wine opens with dark, concentrated fruit on the palate, velvety tannins on the mid-palate, followed by a long and silky finish.
|Wine maker notes
|Fruit for the 815 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from carefully selected vineyards in California’s premier winegrowing regions. After picking, the fruit from each vineyard is hand-sorted at our winery and de-stemmed before being fermented in individual lots. The lots are aged for just over a year in oak, and tasted frequently for tannin and flavor development; they are then blended to balance the characteristics of each vineyard. Napa fruit is complex with great depth, Lake County fruit adds minerality and rich texture, Mendocino fruit provides bright red fruit characteristics, fruit from Lodi has dark fruit components and a soft texture, and Sonoma fruit contributes a touch of spice. Fruit from these varied regions creates an elegant, well-rounded wine that could be made nowhere else than California.
