K&L Notes

Winery notes: "Scattered Peaks is a powerful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon carefully curated and elegantly crafted by legendary Napa Valley Winemaker, Joel Aiken (27 years as winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyards). Bold and full-bodied, Scattered Peaks offers intense black and red fruit aromas bolstered by hints of mountain sage and a touch of anise. On the palate, dark brooding fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis mingle with essence of black licorice and violets as well as espresso and dark chocolate notes. Firm but silky tannins and a touch of vanilla support the long, lingering finish of this classic Napa Valley Cabernet. The wine is composed of: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec and was aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% new."

    Dense and structured Cabernet with enough flesh and richness to be enjoyed young but surely destined for a long and glorious future. Made by one of the greats of Napa Cabernet, Joel Aiken, this wine is long in pedigree, and class. Smokey, dark fruits, blackcurrant and cassis, scorched earth, cocoa nib, graphite and charred oak. Full bodied and powerful but not a fruit bomb. No excessive ripness here, just pure, concentrated Cab with muscular tannin and warm, earthy undertones. We had been working with this wine long before the huge Decanter score dropped...I love it when an old favorite comes up good! Get it while you can...and plan ahead for a decade of enjoyment.

    This 2015 starts off with dense but very expressive aromatics of deep red/black fruit, forest floor, and vanilla. The palate is layered with brighter red fruit (plum, cherry) and fine grain, mouthcoating tannins. Although the aromatics imply a pretty imposing red, there is a freshness on the palate that highlights a level of refinement. Good balanced Napa Cabernet, and very compelling for the price. With its recent press, this is not long for the shelves.
