Since its debut vintage in 2012, the Patriarch has achieved recognition as one of Napa Valley’s greatest Cabernets, most recently appearing on Forbes’ “World’s 30 Best Wines of 2019” list.

"We are confident the remarkable 2015 vintage will continue this legacy. Patiently aged for 21 months in French oak, the 2015 Patriarch is a symphony of structure and sophistication, with seamless layers of cassis, spiced plums, leather, and roasted espresso beans."

The historic 2015 vintage was one of the smallest harvests in decades, which led to intensely flavored fruit, but smaller yields. As such, the 2015 vintage of Patriarch was the smallest we ever produced. This limited-production wine hails from our iconic Winston Hill Vineyard in Rutherford, where only the very best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are hand selected for this 100% varietal wine.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Patriarch shows a deep garnet-purple color with a cassis, spiced plums, black cherry compote, menthol, chocolate box, earth and tobacco nose. Medium to full-bodied in the plush, spicy mouth, it's expressive with lovely balance, soft acid and velvety tannins, finishing long.

Loaded up, with lots of mouthfilling raspberry, plum and boysenberry confiture flavors pumping through, enlivened by a well-buried bramble note and backed by a singed alder echo on the finish that lends cut and drive. Best from 2020 through 2036.

This is a thick, concentrated wine from the producer's estate site on the eastern benches of the appellation. Leather, earth and blue and red fruit meld together within firm sizable tannins and prominent oak. The wine is made in a big full-bodied style.
