2015 Oakville Reserve Salmanazar
True to the vibrant character of the 2015 vintage, our 2015 Oakville Reserve returns with enthralling verve and freshness.
A dynamic opulence of dark fruit expression thrills the olfactory sense to reveal a taut, widening plane of lifted red fruit on the palate. Bewitching dark blue fruit tones drive an energetic, but focused depth and length through the finish.
"This bottling is the pinnacle of what Oakville represents and tastes like each vintage. A barrel selection of the finest parcels of our estate vineyards, we craft this wine in a classic style, to speak to the truest expression of the place where we farm." -Winemaker Peter Heitz
praise for 2015 oakville reserve
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve has a baked black cherries, blackberries and wild blueberries-scented nose with hints of lavender, pencil shavings and earth plus a touch of cloves. The palate is full-bodied and bursting with blackberry and earthy flavors, supported by soft, rounded tannins and finishing with a hint of pepper."
