85 2015

85 is a blend of Mendocino grapes - 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. It was aged in 30% medium toasty, new American oak and 70% seasoned oak barrels. Alcohol checks in at 14.5% abv and it sells for $45. They only made 240 cases.
The wine is medium dark and smells of plums and blackberries, with great notes of sage, vanilla and eucalyptus. That dark fruit hits big on the palate and carries along nice oak spice notes with it. Tannins are fairly aggressive, and the finish lingers awhile.

Small Lot Mendocino County Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Wonderful well balanced cab. Excellent mouthfeel and body with a smooth lasting finish. Bold enough to stand up to standard cab pairings like steak but smooth enough to enjoy in the evening on the patio. I wish that I could be more elaborate than just yummy. — a year ago
