2015 Four Flags 3.0L
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.
Jeb Dunnuck for Jeb Dunnuck, April 2018:
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags comes from the top four vineyards in any vintage and in 2015 is 30% Grand Ciel, 30% Upchurch, 25% Ciel du Cheval, and the rest from Klipsun. It’s a rich, powerful wine that offers boatloads of ripe black cherries, crushed violets, incense, and Asian spice aromatics. Rich, full-bodied, supple, and impressively concentrated, it shows the ripe yet focused/elegant style of the vintage.
