2015 Kuleto Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Estate Magnum (1.5L Magnum)
The crop in 2015 was substantially lighter than in the previous 3 vintages and produced wines of great intensity. At critical periods, it remained cool enough to stretch the harvest out for over two weeks, allowing for good flavor development without dehydration of the fruit.
77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 6% Cab Franc
Aging 20 months in French oak, 20% new
Kuleto is one of the most complex and diverse wine producing properties in the world. Located in the volcanic mountains of eastern Napa our estate features 781 total acres and 82.9 acres of vines perched along ridges and clinging to steep hillsides. Our soils, exposures, elevation changes and sub-climates are so complex that we’ve delineated our property into more than 100 micro-blocks. Each of these tiny plots is treated as an individual vineyard with varieties, clones, rootstocks, density, trellising and farming methods tailored specifically to the site.
