Wente Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Old Cresta Blanca vineyard, first agricultural minister in California, went to France to bring back cuttings, 1882 started Crests Blanca, 1981 was acquired by Wente, now used as a barrel room and for consumer facing activities, Tobacco, wood spice, earth, old leather, smoke, and subtle fennel and herb greet the nose. On entry there is a touch of tamarind in the bright, entry, clear attack with soft but present tannins supporting a nice blend of black raspberry and dark cherry fruit. There is an accent of vanilla here along with nicely integrated wood flavors which still allows the wine to express its bright fruit, earth, floral and a suggestion of weedy complexity unfettered. Clean and very firm in an elegant way, this shows good length with a powdery, dusty finish and some walnutty, toasted oak notes. Just lovely with its mid plus weight and no fat or stickiness on the palate. 91pts

Black olive vegetal nose. A very cool, calm and collected Cab that embraces you with its tannins and red fruit. Easy drinking cab that embodies all the best elements of the grape variety.

Mr. Ireland isn't easily fooled but he took this to be a Zin or Malbec - it's thick purple and great flavors.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon has lush flavors of cherry and plum, with hints of cedar and violets in the nose. The tannins are smooth, making this a great pair with roasted and grilled meats, or fuller flavored fish such as salmon and Ahi tuna.

Wine Tasting NotesThe origins of Wente Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon date back to when Charles Wetmore first imported this clone of Cabernet to the Livermore Valley from the commune of Margaux, France. Purple color. Black tea, black cherry fruit aromas. Subtle and well integrated vanilla oak aromas. Black olive aromas. Powerful, yet silky tannins with a fruit filled mouthfeel. Balanced acidity, smooth yet lingering finish.
