2015 Goat Trek Vineyard
Allotted to Queue, Limited Availability
750 ml - $55.00
A single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the Quivira Collection offers the purest possible expression of site, vintage, and variety. Located in the rugged hills of Dry Creek Valley between the floor and the Sonoma Coast, Goat Trek vineyard is immersed in the wilderness. Bold mountain fruit thrives at 1,200 feet above sea level. Warm days and moderate evening temperatures gave us perfect tannin maturity while the 2015 vintage's lower yields gave us superb density and concentration.
The stars aligned for 2015 Goat Trek Cabernet Sauvignon yielding a wine not only amply endowed with great concentration, but also with finesse, elegance, and a truly seamless balance. With only a little air, intense dark fruit aromas of cassis, cherry, blackberry, and plum mingle alongside more subtle notes of graphite, cocoa, allspice, cedar, and cigar box. Flavors carry forward from the nose but now include the most subtle varietal herbal notes of olive and marjoram. The palate is immediately round and plush, being rich yet never heavy with super-fine tannins and soft, yet-balanced, acidity.
