SKU #1466173 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Made by winemaker Dave Phinney and photographer Greg Gorman, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific, hedonistic, ready to go blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Malbec, all of which is from the Lewelling Vineyards. Deep purple-colored with sweet notes of blackberry liqueur, incense and spice, a touch of floral and graphite nuances, it’s full-bodied, nuanced, and seamless, and best drunk over the coming 10-12 years. 225 cases.

K&L Notes

GKG Cellars is the brain child of famed photographer Greg Gorman. A lifelong wine enthusiast; his travels as a world class photographer exposed him to many of the world's great wines and winemakers. It was only a matter of time before Gregs passion for "creation" would steer him down this path. His friendship with famed vintner Dave Phinney (Orin Swift, The Prisoner) catapulted his aspirations into the world of making world class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is sourced from the famed Lewelling Vineyard; an historic property in the western foothills of Saint Helena originally established in 1864

The team up between Greg Gorman and Dave Phinney is a crushing success! The wine bears some of the opulence that is associated with Phinney's style but has gorgeous lift and structure. This is a mouthfiller with sweet currant jam, Chambord, baking spices and lavender. The tannins are supple and the finish is long...so long. A real pleasure in a glass that touches cult wine flavor profiles but at a much more reasonable price.

This is an amazing opportunity to grab the last batch of this gorgeous Napa Cab at over 25% OFF the original winery price. The 2015 Cab is aged 18 months in 100% French Oak of which 60% is new. This is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon rounded out with a touch of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbed. It offers incredible purity of flavor and elegance. There’s plenty of blue fruits, cassis, graphite, and violet tinged-aromas and flavors. This is classic, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with polished tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. This multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed over the coming 10+ years.
