Fait Main Teeter Totter Cabernet Savignon 2015
Producer notes - 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, %5 Syrah, 5% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc. The 2015 vintage is powerful and well-balanced boasting with fresh aromatics. Pops of blackberry, raspberry, and vanilla grab you first followed by subtler notes of thyme, violet and lavender. The smaller percentages of Bordeaux varietals create a juicy palate filled with impeccably balanced tannins. The well-structures fruit laden finish keep you coming back for more.
Jeb DunnuckMade with the idea of an approachable, yet high-quality Napa Cabernet, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Benoit Touquette delivers the goods. Possessing a big, sexy nose of ripe currants, cassis, scorched earth and licorice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, impeccable balance, and a hedonistic, undeniably delicious style. It will keep for a decade.
Wine AdvocateSomething of a smorgasbord blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with dollops of Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up loads of incense, spice box and dried flowers notions over a crÃ¨me de cassis, cherry pie and fruitcake core. The medium to full-bodied palate is plush, rich and bursting with spicy black and red fruit flavors, going pleasantly savory on the finish.
