Carter Cellars Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Tasting Notes

From high up on the eastern Oakville Bench and renown for its red volcanic soil, this translucent purple wine opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis and crushed petals. This year the wine has a fleshy opulent mouthfeel matched with notably plush tannins and natural acidity. Considerable depth and fruit will continue to develop as the structure starts to integrate with bottle age and bring tremendous purity and allure. Decanting a few hours will benefit this wine for early drinking; cellar for 5-10 years to enjoy this wine in its prime

"Coming from red volcanic soils located just above Backus Vineyard in Oakville, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Weitz Vineyard is undeniably mountain fruit and has a fresh, focused, chiseled style as well as incredible complexity in its black and blue fruits, incense, Asian spice, graphite, and ample crushed rock-like minerality. This beautifully complete, impeccably balanced beauty needs 3-4 years of bottle age yet will keep for 2-3 decades."

The History of the Weitz Vineyard

Long considered one of the gems in Turnbull’s Vineyard portfolio, the Weitz Vineyard sits on 62 glorious acres high on the Oakville Bench above some of the most famous vineyards in the world. Characterized by fractured volcanic rocks and degraded boulders, the scarcity of soil forces the vines to struggle and naturally controls fruit production. The fruit itself is renowned for its profound structure, elegant rich texture and lingering acidity and minerality. We are proud to join such notable wineries like the Maybach Family to source fruit out of this remarkable vineyard.
