About This Wine:
Should he allow the vineyard to full express itself, essentially rendering WiSH Vineyards’ 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon a “fruit bomb,” or should he reign it in to some degree by aging the wine in French oak barrels?
He opted for the latter, and it’s difficult to argue with his decision once the wine is sitting in a glass. While fruit scents dominate the initial impression, they gradually are joined by, as Anderson puts it, “all the myriad aromas that a barrel can bring.”
And it only gets better in the mouth, as the palate is caressed with ripe, creamy and well-integrated tannins. These finessed tannins amplify the mid-palate and create a sense of fullness. Juicy flavors echoing the aromas join with refreshing acidity to create an elegant red wine with pinpoint balance. No question: Anderson made all the right decisions in the cellar.
