2015 Gandona Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML
Wonderfully fresh and superbly balanced, this wine is a clear and resonant reflection of an ideal growing season. Precise expressions of blueberries, warm strawberry preserves, crème de cassis, and violets are built on deeper layers of graphite, tilled earth, menthol, and button mushroom. These aromas explode from the glass, evolving so quickly it is hard to keep up. Intense flavors of black cherries, cocoa nibs, and berry compote race across the palate with a laser-like focus. They are supported by structured, but well-integrated, tannins that are impeccably balanced. Arching upwards in the mouth, this wine is 3-dimensional; the exceptional purity carries through a miles-long finish without even a moment’s deviation. This is truly classic wine of immense approachability, but will also reward for decades to come.
