Schug Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

SKU 173


This supple and generous Cabernet Sauvignon blend is crafted in the classic Bordeaux style that Walter Schug pioneered in the 1970s as winemaster of Joseph Phelps Vineyards. A ripe mouthful of currant and cherry flavors is framed by fine tannins and a touch of spicy oak. It has a classic bouquet bursting with berries, cassis and spice. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot are blended in to add depth and elegance, further enhancing the bright berry flavors and lively acidity. Try this wine with hearty stews, wild mushrooms and grilled meats. Though ready to enjoy now, it will develop gracefully with 5 to 7 years of additional cellaring.

Wine AdvocateMedium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with blackberries and blackcurrants aromas with earth, pencil shavings and bay leaves accents. The medium-bodied palate is firm and lively with a good core of pure fruit and an herbal lift on the finish. 1,739 cases produced.
