High Dive Red Blend 2015

Product description

A 'Left Bank' Bordeaux-styled blend, High Dive is a proprietary red that is an homage to the classic Napa Valley blends of the 1970s. Dark berries and black cherry aromatics lead to a dense core of cassis. Field ripe strawberries, crushed blackberries and brooding blue tones encapsulate powerful textural highlights. Fantastic density and weight, with an expanding midpalate that turns to purity and uplift in finishing. Blend: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon,16% Merlot, ?14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

94 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine    The 2015 High Dive Napa Valley Red Blend is impressive. This wine is dramatic from the beginning to the end. It's bold aromas and flavors of black fruit, a medley of ripe berries, earth, and oak stays long and lasting on the palate. Pair with a thick ribeye and dollop of strong blue cheese.

91 Points - Decanter    A lovely rich structure with smoky cassis, tobacco, spiced plum and chocolate notes. Velvety tannin, wonderfully balanced oak flavours and a lingering, smooth finish.

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    The 2015 Red Blend checks in as 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. It shows the ripe, powerful style of the vintage in its plum, ground herbs, licorice, mulling spices, and chocolaty aromas and flavors. These flow to a ripe, full-bodied wine that has solid palate presence. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years.
