2015 Tomahawk Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District
Take an imaginary stroll with us to the land of Tomahawk. Picture a perfect summer day and feel the warmth of the sun as we walk south towards this magnificent vineyard. As we pass the intersection of two blocks just north of our destination we stop to feel a sudden change—a noticeable breeze envelops and cools us. This is where the terroir of Tomahawk begins. We look back north and note that the warmer Palisades are now in the far distance.
We walk up to the first row of vines and their broad cordons appear powerful and serene. Underfoot, the volcanic soils stress the roots to produce something that no other block can yield. To stand here is to look into the soul of Tomahawk. 2015 confirms everything we have always known about this vineyard; it has a powerful story to tell. Join us and listen, closely.
Aroma: This opulent wine dances with aromas of damson, cherry, black berry, cedar, tobacco and a hint of caramel
Flavor: This wine is full bodied and rich with fleshy tannins and rich mid palate and a long finish.
