The 2015 Crown Point Estate Selection is a classically styled Bordeaux blend that not only reflects the true character of the vineyard, but also captures the unique nature of the vintage. Aromatically this wine shows off nuanced expressions of blackberries, bay leaf, and pain grillé- while peppery spice, violets, and black currant highlight the palate. Elegance personified. Structured and refined- the precise, succulent tannins are indicative of a wine with a long life ahead of it in the cellar. Drink with confidence now through decades to come.

Dark and thick in appearance, this estate blend from winemaker Adam Henkel and proprietor Roger Bower shows a tremendous cassis aroma, with splashes of smoke, dried purple flowers and baking spice. The palate begins with a lavish entry of polished tannins that still have some teeth, providing tension that carries the dark fruit flavors deep into the finish.

The deep, inky colored 2015 Estate Selection is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% each of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec, and the rest Merlot, aged 26 months in new French oak. This beauty boasts a fabulous bouquet of blackcurrants, melted licorice, cigar wrapper, and tobacco leaf, with more spice and dried flower notes coming through with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and elegant, with beautiful purity as well as ripe tannin, it certainly has the class to drink nicely today, yet will be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.

The 2015 Estate Selection is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec and 2% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of perfumed kirsch, warm black cherries, cassis and plums with touches of rose hip tea, eucalyptus, baking spices, violets and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a firm, velvety texture and loads of layers, finishing with a lively lift. 509 cases produced.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Selection presents a more aromatic and red-toned profile than the Cabernet Sauvignon, most likely because of the presence of Cabernet Franc and other blenders. The last year has really helped the Estate Selection come together. I can't wait to see how it ages.

This is soft, rounded and very forward, featuring plum sauce and blackberry cream flavors, backed by pudding and mocha notes. A bit much in terms of style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020.
