A deep shade of mahogany red, our 2015 Au Sommet offers aromas of black pepper and dark fruit immediately, opening up to a range of black and purple berries with time in the glass. This Cabernet is showing beautifully now but is built to age for years to come. On the palate are flavors of currants, plums and smoke, complemented by a lush tannin profile giving way to a lengthy finish. As elegantly refined as Cabernet comes.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon struts out of the glass with bold cassis, crushed black cherries and blackberries with touches of menthol, pencil lead, tapenade, lavender, espresso and bay leaves. The lively palate is full-bodied with firm, grainy, super ripe tannins and a fantastic mineral-tinged finish.

John Schwartz's 2015 Au Sommet is superb. Nuanced, polished and super-delicious, the 2015 possesses exceptional finesse and texture in the mid-weight, gracious style that is Heidi Barrett's signature. The flavors are dark and incisive in this dark, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Even so, the 2015 retains terrific freshness for the year. Black cherry, lavender, graphite, plum and menthol add striking layers of nuance.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Sommet checks in as a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petite Verdot that spent 12 months in barrel. It offers a tight, focused, firm style to go with lots of currants and caramelized cherry fruits, licorice and scorched earth aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and a length, spice-filled finish. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following 10-15 years. 375 cases.
