This wine is expressive immediately with blackberry cobbler, cassis, and wild herbs.
On the palate the wine has broad, mouth coating tannins, cocoa powder, minerality, and a fresh, balancing streak of acidity. Though expressive and enjoyable now, the warmth and strength of the vintage will age fabulously for years to come.
2015 was an incredible growing year – especially for Cabernet Sauvignon, the focus of Doubleback. Balancing out the heat of the vintage, our later ripening vineyards – McQueen, Lefore, and Pepper Bridge – really shined bright and they represent the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon we have ever had in a Doubleback blend.
Bottling Date: July 2017
Aged in 85% new French oak and 15% neutral French oak barrels for 22 months.
