SKU #1470514 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Eagle Summit Vineyard is deep purple-black colored with baker's chocolate, yeast extract and tapenade notes over stewed plums and blackcurrant cordial notions plus a waft of espresso. It's full, rich, opulent and plush in the mouth with plenty of expressive berry preserves flavors and baking spices coming through on the long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackcurrants, licorice, nutmeg and roasted herbs. The ripe fruit is holding on, but it's all in reserve with good finesse. Structured tannins, fresh acidity and a chewy finish. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

K&L Notes

From the winery: "The Eagle Summit Vineyard, owned by the Doty family, was the first vineyard that Josh replanted upon his return to the Napa Valley. It was replanted in 2000 to Cabernet Sauvignon with two different rootstock and clonal selections. The soil is composed of well drained Aiken loam and is comprised of a mix of rich red soil and classic Howell Mountain rocks. There is the use of a permanent cover crop to help dry down spring soils and promote smaller, concentrated fruit. The vineyard is situated at an elevation of 2100 feet and is slightly rolling. Eagle Summit is one of those vineyards that year after year performs consistently and offers up the highest quality of fruit with very little manipulation." Winemaker is Thomas Rivers Brown, one of the most celebrated winemakers in Napa Valley who makes wine for his own label Rivers-Marie, as well as many clients including Saunter, Outpost, Harris, Wallis, Hobel and Stone the Crows.
