Philip Togni Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – RP 96
Medium garnet-purple colored with a very classic nose of cassis, warm plums and crushed blackberries with notions of cigar box, garrigue, damp soil and truffles plus wafts of menthol and underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally.
Kongsgaard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – RP 94+
Deep garnet-purple colored, the wine delivers notes of preserved plums, blueberry pie and black currant with hints of chocolate box, cigar box, spice cake and pencil lead. Full-bodied and very firm, it has tons of black fruit and spice layers, featuring a fresh blackberry and licorice character on the finish.
Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – RP 97
Very deep purple-black colored, this wine bursts forth from the glass with opulent crème de cassis, baked cherries and mocha notes with touches of charcuterie, licorice, sandalwood and forest floor. Big, rich and full-on sexy in the mouth, it delivers loads of black fruit preserves, exotic spice and savory layers. Framed by soft, very fine-grained tannins, it finishes with lingering anise and chocolate-covered cherries notions. Yum!
Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – RP 96
Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the wine gives a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant nose of crushed black cherries and blueberries with suggestions of violets, dark chocolate and cinnamon stick plus a waft of cigar box. The voluptuous, full-bodied palate layers on the fruit and spice flavors, framed by plush tannins and culminating in a very long, fruit-driven finish. Decadent stuff!
Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (not rated)
Gorgeous flavors and beautiful, velvety tannins is the first impression and the palate offers dark berry, cassis and tobacco flavors. It has a long finish with great potential to evolve and age.
