2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Father Mathew, Family Collection, Yountville
This rendition of the Father Mathew Cabernet Sauvignon displays the exuberant and rich character of both the 2015 Vintage and its Yountville vineyard site. Chocolate dipped cherries, ripe strawberry, and rhubarb pie waft from the glass. The palate opens with a silky texture that is accompanied by ripe cherry and plum that are framed by dark cocoa and loamy earth. It all trails into a persistent finish of strawberry, vanilla, and cedar, that is carried by the wines plush texture and incredibly ripe tannins. It’s magnificent.
