Vanessa Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

92 points – From the record heat of the 2015 vintage, this contains largely free run juice aged 20 months in French and American oak. It is a rich, smooth yet quite bright cabernet with lifted, very pretty floral, black currant, oak resin/chocolate and green cedar on the nose. Nicely defined cabernet aromatics. It is full bodied, quite dense yet smooth and almost juicy. The tannins are gentle, the alcohol is elevated, the acidity drops out a bit in the middle, but the fruit is generous. Excellent length.
