2015 Yates Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder)
Located on Redwood Road, Yates Family Vineyard is a family-owned vineyard located at the very top of Mt. Veeder. This high elevation vineyard produces wines of great depth, polish and balance. If you enjoy Bordeaux-style wines, this cabernet is the one for you.
The 2015 Yates Cabernet Sauvignon is dark garnet with purple undertones in the glass. The nose is black and blue fruits, hints of earth, vanilla and eucalyptus. The mouth is a melange of dark berry fruit over a backdrop of toasted oak, cassis and a fine tread of dark chocolate. This 100% cabernet sauvignon wine finishes in balance with length and grace. Aged 22 months in French Oak (75% new).
Like our other cabernet sauvignon wines, yields in this vineyard were down quite a bit for the 2015 vintage.
