Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 93 Points
Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, coming 50% from Pritchard Hill, 38% from Rutherford bench and 12% from Oakville bench, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely cassis, blackberry pie and preserved plums notes with hints of cedar, un-smoked cigars, dusty earth and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a compelling anise character, with red, black and blue fruit layers, supported by velvety tannins and finishing with great length.


Other Notes: 94 Points
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from sites in Pritchard Hill and Rutherford and is another terrific wine. More concentrated and dense than the 2014, with notes of black fruits, scorched earth/mineral, licorice, and spice-box, itís full-bodied, tight and concentrated on the palate, with ample tannin. This focused, lengthy, impressive 2015 needs 3-4 years of bottle age and will shine for 15-20 years. 94


Antonio Galloni's Notes: 96 Points
Celia Welch's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is off the charts. Dense, plush and alluring, the 2015 makes a strong first impression and never lets up. The move towards using more fruit from Pritchard Hill is one of the many decisions that gives the 2015 its incredibly vivid, distinctive personality. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, espresso, herbs and wild flowers are some of the many notes that develop over time. Moreover, the 2015 has a level of freshness and vivacity that I don't recall seeing here in the past. At times, the wine's aromatic nuance suggests an elevated presence of Cabernet Franc. The interplay of exotic ripeness and energy is simply compelling. What a gorgeous wine this is. Vineyard sites are Martinez, Melanson (both on Pritchard Hill), Tietjen (Rutherford) and UC Davis's Oakville Station. Sadly, yields are down 33%.
