2015 Rivers-Marie "Lore Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1340691 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Moving to the 2015s and pure perfection is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lore Vineyard. Made from 100% Cabernet aged in 90% new French oak, this blockbuster offers up a huge nose of blackcurrants, espresso, scorched earth, liquid violets and graphite. With a massive amount of fruit, full-bodied richness, and incredible tannin quality, this beauty glides over the palate and is a sensational, heavenly red that needs short-term cellaring and will keep for 20-25 years.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lore Vineyard has a wonderfully expressive, savory nose of char-grilled meat, truffles, sautéed herbs and Bovril with a core of crème de cassis, blackberry tart, menthol, mocha and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate simply sings with intense black fruits accented with loads of savory layers, framed by grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing with epic length.

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the highlights in this range, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lore Vineyard is deep, explosive and massively structured, as wines from this Oakville hillside site always are. Graphite, sage, lavender and black cherry are some of the many notes that run through this super-expressive, virile Cabernet Sauvignon. All of the Rivers-Marie Cabernets are compelling, but the Lore has a little (or a lot) more of everything. I loved it. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2018)
