Addax Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
This delightful new release from the renowned Tench vineyard (next door to Screaming Eagle) exudes aromas of blackcurrant and loads of red berries, hints of tobacco leaf and lavender. A mouthwatering entry coats the palate with elegant and well-defined layers, while the flavor and texture are complemented by notes of creamy French oak. This is wonderful example of Cabernet from a very special site. Enjoy this up-and-coming gem tonight (decanting recommended) or anytime through 2025.
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the Addax 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard gives up notions of black cherries, cassis and red and black plums with hints of dried Mediterranean herbs, pencil shavings and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and seductive in the mouth, it has a satisfying core of black fruit and earthy layers with firm, grainy tannins and a long, savory finish.
