Carter Cellars Fortuna Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


Tasting Notes

The 2015 wine from the Fortuna Vineyard is a true expression of a great Napa Valley Cabernet from the Oakville floor - a wine that exudes both depth and the concentration. This extraordinary wine offers up inky jam colored hue with wonderfully sweet notes of beautiful red and black fruit, matched with a tannic backbone, silky palate and full-bodied finish.

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortuna Vineyard looks sexy as well, with the sucrosity of the vineyard well-displayed, ripe tannins, terrific fruit intensity and a magnificent full-bodied finish."- Barrel Sample

~ Robert Parker


 

Map of the Fortuna Vineyard

The History of the Fortuna Vineyard

In Oakville, this 59 acre site on Napa Valley's floor has ancient red volcanic soils and alluvial cobblestone from the adjoining Vaca Mountain Range. Off the Silverado Trail, this unique sloping bench produces spicy fruit with tannic backbone and then combines with the tell-tale dust that have made Napa Valley Oakville Cabernets so famous.
