2015 Passing Time Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
The Wine Advocate Review, June 2017
"What I suspect will be one of the wines of the vintage, the deep purple-colored 2015 Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon offers sensational aromatics (cassis, crushed rocks, dark chocolate and lead pencil), full-bodied richness and layered, multi-dimensional, stunningly pure profile. This beauty has nothing out of place, beautiful concentration, ripe, sweet tannin and blockbuster length. Count me as a fan."

Tasting note—Complex and deep aromas of black currant, blackberry, blueberry, crushed violets, freshly ground Ethiopan coffee, mocha, and damp earth notes. This wine features a palate-coating texture, dense with blackberry, blueberry, cassis, dark chocolate, and liquid minerals. Rich and approachable, yet fierce in structure, the ultimate “iron fist in a velvet glove.” Long, full opulent finish. Great power and poise. Give it 2-3 years in the cellar, and drink it over the next twenty years, at least.
