The 2015 'Reserve' Cabernet Sauvignon from Gramercy Cellars is a stunning wine that can benefit from a two plus hour decant at this point in its development. It shows an inky color, unveiling layered black fruits, smoky and earthy tones and Asian spices on the nose. The mouthfeel is sumptuous, as this silky wine glides through the mid-palate. Cigar ash, blackberry compote, black tea, Asian spice and mocha flavors all marvelously combine in the glass. This is a truly fantastic wine which should continue to cellar well for decades but it is highly gratifying in the glass right now. Drink 2019-2035- 95

GW tasting 10/25/16. Very elegant nose of black fruits and cab. Hints of mature peppers. Actually less power than regular but very elegant and long finish of complex fruits and acids.

Wow. Very different from his regular cab the reserve is super concentrated and rich. I think this will benefit from extended again. I bet this is beautiful in 10-12 years and will easily last 15-20. Great great stuff.

Took a long time to open up. Very well balanced. Probably needs 10 years.
