A Riverain 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum (1.5L)

This baby wasn't even in Cellartracker yet, that's because this wine has spent the last couple of years snuggled up to Thomas Rivers-Brown waiting for the word "Go". Well, Steve just said release the hounds. This is Tench Vineyard fruit, across the street from Screaming Eagle, in the hands of TRB and owned by long time Berserker Steve Nordhoff.
2015 Oakville Cabernet, Tench Vineyard: TRB thinks the 2015 Tench Cabernet is our best to date. Both bottlings are marked by the very low yields, and are blockbuster in size, and more like a combination of 2012 and 2013 for us. The fruit jumps out of both even at this early stage and the structure and concentration follows. These are denser and "bigger" than the 2012s, but are not shutdown like the brooding, massive and backward 2013s. The 2015 Cabernet covers the entire fruit spectrum but leans more towards purple and black. There is a minerality/rock underpinning which does not always show this early on. There is also an approachability that contradicts the muscle and structure that is lurking in the finish. Eastern Oakville always brings the acid to keep everything balanced.
