Napa Valley, California
Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Kongsgaard Napa Valleytakes your breath away with its intensity and power, but ultimately with its grace—it is a grand wine draped in velvet, belonging to the Bordeaux tradition that has been our inspiration since John tasted the 1982s from barrel on his first trip to France. Tasting from barrel, Galloni noted that it is “deep, powerful, and explosive…the 2015 has so much fruit that the tannins are nearly buried, but they are there. Small berries and huge tannins add to the wine’s considerable personality. A brilliant wine in the making.” Parker found “glorious berry fruit and minerality jumping from the glass.” -Winemaker's Notes
" A rich, layered wine, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon exudes power. Inky blue and purplish-hued stone fruits hit the palate first, followed by intriguing scents of lavender, sage, mint, graphite and herbs. Deep, powerful and explosive, the 2015 has so much fruit that the tannins are nearly buried, but they are there. Small berries and huge tannins add to the wine's considerable personality. The 2015 is a brilliant wine in the making."

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers notes of preserved plums, blueberry pie and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of chocolate box, cigar box, spice cake and pencil lead. Full-bodied, very firm and very grainy in texture, it has tons of black fruit and spice layers, featuring a fresh blackberry and licorice character on the finish."
