The 2015 Soul of a Lion is a beautifully concentrated wine accompanied by tremendous elegance that incorporates some old world flavors due to the vintage's characteristics. Endowed with beautiful purity and texture, it has all the standard classic Cabernet Sauvignon flavors that include Graphite, Lead Pencil Shavings, blackcurrants and Ash. The higher percentage of Cabernet Franc in this vintage gives it a beautiful aroma and an additional elegant component that rounds it up for a very long finish. Drinking surprising well today, we expect it to shut down shortly for a few years just to be re-awakened for long term cellaring.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Soul Of A Lion is superb, opening in the glass with a rich bouquet of cassis, pencil shavings, asphalt and subtle bay leaf. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and very powerful, with huge depth and dimension and a chewy, savory finish. While this is very much a large-scaled wine, it's full of energy and its fruit is ripe but not sweet. In the context of this cuvée, this is certainly one of the more sun-kissed renditions of Soul Of A Lion, but it's an amazing achievement in a challenging vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon. Based on previous iterations' evolution, it should evolve for a long time.

Wine SpectatorRich and firm, with a solid core of dark berry, plum, blueberry and blackberry flavors that fan out evenly on the palate, ending with a burst of melted black licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 1,500 cases made.
