Vintage Note:

The deep purple hue of the Madden Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a testament to its age-worthiness -- it's still a youngin'! Very ripe blackberry, fruit leather, malt, dark chocolate, and peppercorn vie for attention aromatically. Firm, grippy tannins clot the creamy mouthfeel, and its strong acidity merges into the flavors of just-ripe blueberry and sautéed bell pepper. Drink now or keep cellared for up to eight more years to let these fascinating elements evolve further -- the herbaceous notes will go toward tobacco and the oak influence will strengthen in bottle.

Back Label:

"Football Hall of Famer John Madden is a prominent grape grower in the historic Livermore Valley. I have been working with his Cabernet and Petite Sirah grapes for over a decade and find the resulting wines, like the man, are big, bold and delightful. We're very proud of this delicious wine, which is comprised of fruit from our best vineyards including John's, and we hope you'll enjoy it." -Winemaker Julian Halasz

This wine is still young but full of potential! The dark fruit is at the forefront, but layers of oak influence, tannin, and acidity add great complexity. Looking forward to seeing how it evolves in bottle in the coming years!
