Joel Gott 'No.815' Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Joel Gott Unoaked Chardonnay has bright citrus aromas of mandarin and lime that lead to more floral aromas of vanilla and honeysuckle. On the palate, stone fruit and apple flavors are balanced by a clean, bright acid backbone with a rounder midpalate and minerality on the finish.

What a great chardonnay that doesn't taste like one nor give off the usual attributes one would assign a chardonnay! Although high in alcohol it never gets hot on the palette instead leaving room for the abundant sauvignon-like fruit (but delicate and not as powerful)....it's really great. Also, not a heavy one at all, more medium-ish. Try it if you think you know Chardonnay!

Traditional cab. Good full body. Balanced tannins. Seems almost too textbook.

This is a great wine to take to dinner, without the high price of most reds, and not feel cheap. It is a great find and a great price point.

Offers engaging and layered aromas of blackberry and dark plum with hints of spice, cedar and vanilla. The polished tannins and velvety texture lead to an elegant and long finish.

CaliforniaJoel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon Blend No 815 is one of those rare wines that makes you feel you must have been undercharged! The 2003 release of Blend No 815 was named in honor of Lucy, oldest daughter of Joel and Sarah, born on August 15, 2003, just in time for the madness of harvest. Food and Wine Magazine declared the inaugural 2003 Joel Gott Cab among the best finds under $20 in the October 2005 issue. Each new release has renewed our faith in Joel Gott as a truly gifted winemaker. The new 2012 vintage just released carries on the tradition of excellence.In a very short time, Joel Gott has established cult status in California winemaking. (We still remember the buzz 12 years ago when the 2000 Joel Gott Zinfandel was presented at a trade tasting in New York!) Aside from making great wines, Joel keeps his hand in several other successful businesses, including Napa Valley's hottest burger stand, Taylor's Refresher, where Robert Parker enjoyed one of his "Most Memorable Meals."Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon Blend No 815 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, picking the best fruit from vineyards in several viticultural areas of California, including Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Lodi, Lake County and Paso Robles. Together, these appellations create a balanced, structured wine with aromatics of roasted blue fruit, sweet blackberry and cherry cola with hints of graham cracker and vanilla. The wine enters with dark, concentrated fruit on the palate, velvety tannins on the mid-palate, followed by a long, vibrant finish. It was aged for just over a year in American oak, 26% new barrels. Enjoy Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon Blend No 815 with grilled flank steak, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and cheeses.

This will be the third release of our 815 Cabernet, named in honor of our oldest daughter Lucy, born on August 15, 2003. We believe the 815 Cabernet and Lucy share a few traits; continue to thrive each year, sweet with bold overtones and always

Wine Tasting NotesThe color is purple, ruby red, with aromas of blueberry, cassis and mocha. The entry on the palette is rich and fruit forward, with jammy flavors, good structure, acidity, and sweet balanced tannins that leave an elegant finish.
