Ratings
• 90 POINTS - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec and has a nose of blackberry, cassis, earth, menthol and pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate shows chunky but approachable tannins with good expression and balance, if a little straightforward. • 90 POINTS - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media - Castello di Amorosa's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific wine in its peer group. Supple, open-knit and inviting, the 2015 has quite a bit to offer, especially if enjoyed over the next handful of years. There is plenty of depth to the succulent cherry, plum, lavender and spice flavors. More importantly, the 2015 is impeccably balanced. Drink this lush, powerful Cabernet over the next handful of years, give or take.

Vineyard Notes
A blend of fruit from some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon growing regions in Napa Valley, including our own Diamond Mountain District estate vineyard which surrounds the Castello. A touch of Petit Verdot and Malbec balance the rich dark fruit and tannins of the Cabernet, adding a vibrancy to its lush mouthfeel and lingering finish.
Production Notes
A dry, barrel-aged red wine from the Napa Valley. Shows excellent aging potential for the next decade or more.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 vintage was of high quality, but very low yields in many varieties. The harvest will also be remembered as one of the earliest ever. The relatively dry and warm winter resulted in small clusters of grapes with highly concentrated flavors yielding wines of deep, rich flavors and excellent quality with deep color and lovely fruit aromas. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent to pair with steak with cocoa and coffee rub, chicken mole, or grilled meats.
