Phase V

The 2015 Phase V Cab has a gorgeous garnet color and is loaded with aromas of wild berries, licorice, and cardamon. In the mouth, a sophisticated palate with layers of chocolate, dark cherry, vanilla bean, dry sage and cinnamon. Full bodied with a velvety texture and great length.

95 Points– Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Dec. 2017
