2015 Barrel Reserve Gaspare Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2015 Gaspare Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, brown sugar and cedar, complemented by flavors of ripe black fruit. The wine exhibits vibrant acidity, soft tannins and rich fruit finish.
The 2015 harvest started earlier compared to the previous harvests. 2015 continued the trend of a mild winter, warm, dry spring and summer. Once harvest grew closer, our viticulture team noticed the grape clusters were smaller. The grape clusters were smaller due to multiple vintages of high yields. Even though yields were down, the quality was exceptional. The grapes had high concentrations of fruit flavors and complexity due to smaller grapes.
The 2015 Gaspare Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our own estate grown vines. Coming from the Oak Knoll District AVA, we were able to produce a broad wine with elegant structure that is very fruit-forward and expressive. With the temperature in the Oak Knoll District slightly cooler, we were able to create our wine with excellent balance and vibrant acidity.
