2015 Four Flags 1.5L
RED MOUNTAIN AVA
Befitting a wine sourced from great vineyards on Red Mountain, the 2015 Four Flags presents properly developed fruit aromas of blackberry, red currant and black cherry, balanced with savory herbs, roasted coffee, cedar and anise. The vanguards of the palate are blueberries and fresh plums reinforced by dense, ripe tannin and mouthwatering acidity with an unyielding finish.
Review by Jeb Dunnuck for Robert Parker
A big, structured red that shows the richness and depth of the vintage, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags gives up scorched earth, smoke, black currants, licorice and roasted herbs. Deep, rich, concentrated, backward and closed, it's going to need short term cellaring. This gets four barrels of the old vines from Ciel du Cheval and four barrels from Grand Ciel than normally goes into the single vineyards.
