YOUNT RIDGE CELLARS 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville

Regular price $102.00

WHY WE LOVE IT:

An extraordinary follow up to the 2014 inaugural release from Oakville's Yount Ridge Cellars -  by legendary winemaker Celia Welch ( Keever, Lindstrom, Nicali)

 PERSONALITY: Celia Welch awards:

  • 2008, Food & Wine’s Winemaker of the Year. In
  • 2006, Forbes.com “Top Ten Tastemaker.”
  • Inducted Winemaker’s Hall of Fame
  • Miss Welch is a 100 point winemaker

WHAT WE TASTED:

Complex aromas offer notes of clove, rhubarb, black cherry compote and earthy new leather. Flavors of bright and fresh pomegranate,  mint, juicy black cherry lingering on the mid-palate, with a velvety but firm fine grain tannin finish. The scarcity of 2015 fruit after 3 bumper crop years of drought brings out so much intensity and structure in this wine!

  • Rack of Lamb red wine reduction
  • Veal Chop, Jus, Smoked Trumpet Mushrooms (dining at La Toque Napa)
  • New York Steak, potatoes Anna, creamed spinach
