Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||United States, Washington, Red Mountain|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a success this year, revealing aromas of ripe plums, cassis, pencil shavings and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, rich and generous, with an ample core of fruit, juicy acids and a flavorful finish. It's a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.
Wine EnthusiastThis offers generous black cherry, black raspberry, fruit leather, mineral, spice and herb aromas. The fruit flavors are obviously there, but like most offerings from this appellation, it's very much about structure, framed by firm, juicy tannins and crisp acidity.
