VHR 2015 The 2015 VHR Cabernet Sauvignon is imbued with notes of dried lavender and violet mingled with warm ripe blackberry, dark chocolate shavings, graham cracker, savory herbs, cedar, tobacco and cassis. Silk and velvet are layered over an intense, powerful core of lush, dark fruit, with refined tannins and a persistent finish. An energetic vein of minerality and acidity gives this wine a lift of brightness that frames a generous mouthfeel of ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit, with hints of vanilla bean and mocha. Complex, balanced, full-bodied and opulent, the wine seamlessly integrates the individual attributes of the contributing vineyard blocks to create a singular expression of the vineyard.
