2015 Rivers-Marie Panek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon | St. Helena Napa Valley California 750ml


Even better than the incredible 2014, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard is cut from the same cloth with its huge, sexy, elegant personality. Notes of creme de cassis, blackberry jam, dried herbs, graphite, violets and an incredible minerality all emerge from this blockbuster of a Napa Valley Cabernet that has beautiful tannin, no hard edges, and a profound purity of fruit. It's another 2015 that can be drunk anytime over the coming 2-3 decades. | 99 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

Once we get into the single vineyard category, everything amplifies. The farming at Panek continues to improve every year as we become more and more familiar with the individual blocks. This is predominantly clones 169 and 7 from the rockiest section of the vineyard. The fruit profile here is purple/black with some sweet notes of brown sugar, blackberries and caramelized brown sugar. The structure in this bottling has gotten a little more intense every year as the vineyard matures. the acidity has always been the balancing element in this wine but now there's ample tannin to provide backbone and grip to the finish. There's also now a wet stone / crushed rock component to complement the generous, valley floor fruit profile. Savory notes of camphor, licorice and charcoal help complete the finish making this the most complete Panek we've made to date. 325 cases produced. |
