2015 "The Point" Red Cuvée, "Proprietor's Reserve"
93 Points Josh Reynolds, Vinous
92 Points Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast
Blackberry and cassis, layered with hints of toasted oak and leather make for a dense bouquet. Supple and medium-bodied on the palate, the 2015 Point opens with a Cabernet Sauvignon dominate bouquet while the finely textured mid-palate shows the strength in blending Bordeaux varietals. This wine shows regal texture with age-worthy tannic structure. In its youth, this structure is striking, yet the abundantly lush fruit still dominates. The 2015 Point will continue to evolve over the next 10+ years.
