North American Red Wine
Our selection for this month is the Joel Gott 815 Cabernet Sauvignon California 2017
This archetypal Cabernet has aromas of mocha, blueberry, plums, and spiced cherry. The wine leads with fruit on the palate, supported by firm tannins mid-palate, followed by a long, balanced finish. Pressed to American oak barriques, with twenty-five percent new wood, for eighteen months ageing. 815 Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of bright red fruit, black cherry and raspberry with notes of vanilla and white pepper. The wine opens with dark, concentrated fruit flavors, followed by balanced tannins on the mid-palate, and notes of cedar on the long, textured finish.
