2015 Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon
“Kelly Fleming's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a total knock-out…a tour de force from Kelly Fleming and her brilliant winemaker Rebecca George, not to mention one of the finest wines of the vintage. Don't miss it.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, 97 points
This classic Cabernet Sauvignon opens with complexity of bold aromas; ripe cherry, dark chocolate and black licorice intertwine with earthy notes of dried sage, scorched earth and just a hint of rose petal. The palate is broad and coating at entry, with potent, lingering flavors of dark cocoa, anise and black currant. Structurally, the wine is chiseled and precise, offering tannins that are both fine grained and firm. Texturally, this wine has a distinct contrasting nature: there is a sleek richness and also a very focused tannin profile. In essence, this wine is classic in nature; it expresses the freshness and elegance that is so deeply connected to the Kelly Fleming Estate, while also conveying a powerful combination of substance, structure and length that are bound to develop beautifully with time in the bottle.
