2015 Grand Ciel Cabernet

Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2015 Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon epitomizes the elegance of our estate vineyard while showcasing the power of Red Mountain and the vintage. Cabernet aromas of black currant and blackberry accompany the AV.Ns typical bouquet of floral herb, dried earth and malt. Powerfully built, the wine has an awesome presence that makes way for bright fruit, cedar shavings and cassis. This wine merits substantial cellaring.

“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Ciel Vineyard is a brilliant wine that has both power and elegance. Creme de cassis, black cherries, scorched earth, cedar pencil shavings, and a beautiful floral (violets?) character all flow to a seamless, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has fine tannin, impeccable balance, and a great finish. It shows the warmth yet also the classic style of this great vintage for Washington State. lt will ideally be given 2-4 years of bottle age and is capable of lasting for two decades.”
