The latest Matthew Wallace was sourced from his in-law’s vineyard in the Stag’s Leap District and a small vineyard on Howell Mountain. The 2015 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.  The wine offers up an amazing bright aroma of black stone fruit.  On the palate the wine is rich and lush loaded with bold black stone fruit, dark chocolate, a touch of spice and a hint of toasty vanilla.  The wine really show well and the unctuousness of Howell Mountain grapes  balance well with the elegance and silkiness of the Stag’s Leap vineyard.  The wine is well-balanced and finishes with silky tannins.  Sadly only 104 cases were produced – so act fast!

Winemaker Notes: “A true testament to an impressive vintage, the 2015 Matthew Wallace Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, lush and intense. The combination of small berries in a warm vintage on a western hillside deliberately ripened the fruit to a dark and opulent black. Layers of chocolate truffle, earthy spices and cigar leaf enhance the melted tannins- a signature of the 2015 vintage- and lend themselves to a seductive and lengthy finish. – Julien Fayard, Winemaker – ”
