2015 The Vow Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML

95+ Vinous | 93 Wine Advocate   A rich, opaque violet, The Vow is concentrated and decadent from beginning to end.  The velvety, full entry of ripe blackberry, cassis, and a touch of espresso bean entice as dark, earthy notes glide through the palate.  A true expression of its Rutherford terroir, lingering tones of cocoa dust and tobacco leaf complement this wine’s serious structure and plush tannins. 

 

A rich, opaque violet, the 2015 is concentrated and decadent from beginning to end. The Vow is bold and notably dense with compelling aromas of baking spice and black cherry that linger as hints of dried herbs and sandalwood emerge. The velvety, full entry of ripe blackberry, cassis, and a touch of espresso bean entice as dark, earthy notes glide through the palate.  A true expression of its Rutherford terroir, lingering tones of cocoa dust and tobacco leaf complement this wine’s serious structure and plush tannins. Captivating now, this wine will gain greater depth and nuance for more than 15 years.

"One of the many highlights in this range, the Cabernet Sauvignon Gravel Series The Vow is terrific today. Powerful, structured and tannic, The Vow packs a real punch. Gravel, smoke, cured meat, charcoal embers and licorice add to the wine's feel of gravitas. Readers will have to be patient, but the 2015 looks like to have the potential to develop into a pretty special wine. Even at this early stage, it is compelling. " - Antonio Galloni, March 2018

"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Vow has a dusty earth, sandalwood and dried herbs nose over a core of blackberry preserves and blueberry compote with a waft of forest floor. The full-bodied palate is concentrated, rich and decadent in the mouth with plush tannins and a long, exotic spice finish." - Robert Parker, August 2017
