Akane Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2015

“The 2015 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A mild winter and spring compounded with almost no rain contributed to early ripening, low to moderate yields and highly concentrated grapes resulting in exceptional quality. 2015 is one of the earliest vintages we’ve seen in over a decade, but it will also go down as one of the best.

The 2015 Akane Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple in color, the nose is vibrant with notes of plum, blackberry and toasted bread. The palate is finely textured with dusty tannins giving way to a silky mouthfeel. The long finish is favored with black cassis, toffee and brambly berry fruit.” Winemaker’s notes
