2015 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. Our Balius Cabernet is dark and dense, with aromas of cassis, plum, anise, and just the right amount of toasty spice and vanilla. is fruit forward Cabernet is intense and enveloped in soft, ripe, tannins, which lead to beautiful balanced finish.

Aromas of dried currant, geranium, and terra cotta dust with a velvety, bright, dry full body and a warming, complex, long roasted figs with chocolate glaze, hoisin sauce, and sandalwood finish with well-integrated, silky tannins and moderate oak. A lovely floral Rutherford Cab with a bountiful bouquet of fruits & spices."

wine spectator 91 pts"This shows the sage and underbrush profile of the vintage, but with a bit more brightness to the fruit, as raspberry and plum coulis flavors emerge from the core. Light graphite, anise and mineral hints streak the finish. Best from 2020 through 2034. 1,900 cases made.—J.M."
