Secret Indulgence Tarot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The 2015 Tarot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful but elegant, velvety smooth and intriguing. With notes of violets, dark berries, bramble and warm black mission fig, the nose is reminiscent of walking through a blackberry patch. From the first sip, the Tarot Cabernet provides balanced intensity and structure. Notes of blue and black berries mingle on your palate with lavender, black cherry and all spice, finishing with a long, graceful mouthfeel.

Wine AdvocateBlended of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Petit Sirah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Tarot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and exuberant nose of warm plums, crushed cherries and crème de cassis with touches of Indian spices, fragrant earth and violets with a waft of lavender. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it fills the palate with black berry and earthy layers, finishing with the lovely velvety texture paving the way.
Jeb DunnuckThe 2015 Tarot Cabernet Sauvignon offers more black cherry, spice and hints of toast, as well as medium to full-bodied richness and a tighter, more focused, concentrated style. It’s terrific now but should evolve gracefully.
