2015 Perfect Season Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes that go into each bottle of Perfect Season are meticulously grown in our Bidwell Creek Vineyard and cultivated to the exacting standards of our winemaking and viticultural teams. At harvest, grape clusters are picked by hand and placed in small micro-bins to prevent skins from rupturing. In the winery, whole clusters are first sorted, removing any damaged or imperfect ones, and gently crushed and de-stemmed. The resulting individual berries are then hand-sorted again before fermentation. In essence, each berry used to create Perfect Season has been personally selected by our team.
"THE 2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON... RATCHETS UP THE LEVEL OF INTENSITY BY A FEW
POINTS. IT DISPLAYS SLIGHTLY BLACKER FRUITS, A TREMENDOUS PURITY AND SUCROSITY OF
FRUIT, AN UNCTUOUS TEXTURE, AND A TERRIFIC FINISH WITH REAL CHARACTER AND
PERSONALITY. THIS SHOULD TURN OUT TO BE A BEAUTY AND EDGE OUT ITS RIVAL, THE
2014. IT SHOULD ALSO DRINK WELL FOR AT LEAST 15-20 OR MORE YEARS. BOTH ARE
GREAT EXAMPLES OF VITICULTURE IN THE UP-AND-COMING KNIGHTS VALLEY. 95-97 Points - Robert Parker
The 2015 vintage of Perfect Season Cabernet Sauvignon was handcrafted by winemaker Philippe Melka from grapes farmed by viticulturist Jim Barbour. In its youth, it benefits from 3 hours of decanting. We hope you enjoy!
