In the same mold as the 2014 only slightly deeper, more concentrated, and backward, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers loads of blue fruits, cedar, lead pencil, and scorched earth aromatics, full-bodied richness, and building tannin. As with a lot of 2015s, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of black cherries, warm blackberries, black plums and licorice with touches of cedar chest, Indian spices and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, rich, opulent and full-on seductive with its plush tannins, layered ripe fruits and exotic spices, it finishes long and perfumed. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Kobalt is a big, richly textured wine endowed with superb concentration and depth. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol and sweet spice abound in a flamboyantly ripe, exotic Cabernet that will drink well right out of the gate. Mark Herold has once again done a terrific job with this wine. -- Antonio Galloni

Label

Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is full-bodied and concentrated with plush tannins.

The winery has used the same vineyards in Coombsville since 2001, with the addition of 15% Stagecoach fruit in the 2013 & 2014 vintages. These vineyard locations are warm and cool down every night, preserving the natural acidity and tannic structure. The must is cold soaked for 48-72 hours and then fermented. Once dry, the Cabernet is aged in 100% new French oak for 22-27 months. All Kobalt wines are unfiltered to preserve the natural intensity of the fruit flavors.

Winery

Kobalt

Kobalt Wines was founded by Kevin Carriker in 1998. With the help of his friend, former-Merus winemaker Mark Herold, he purchased a small vineyard in Coombsville. After a couple of years, again with Mark’s help, Kevin made his first Cabernet Sauvignon.
