About this product

ÂThe 2015 vintage yielded a small crop of exceptional quality fruit. The 2015 J. Daniel Cuvée reflects this, with its modern Napa Valley ripeness coupled with classic varietal characteristics and structure. Black fruits are on full display in the aromas and flavors, including blackberry, black raspberry, black cherry, boysenberry, and black currant berry (cassis). The texture is creamy, elegant, regal and rich, with fine tannins lingering on a fabulously long finish. This is a wonderful vintage for J. Daniel Cuvée" Philippe Melka, Winemaker

ÂDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 J. Daniel Cuvée bursts forth with gregarious blackcurrant pastilles, black cherries and warm plum notes backed up by notions of spice cake, mocha and licorice. The full-bodied palate is powerfully fruited with opulent exotic spices accenting the black forest cake notions, framed by plush tannins and finishing with epic length. A beautifully buxom showstopper! RP

ÂThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvee is an inky, full-bodied, majestic Cabernet Sauvignon that should be a candidate for perfection in a decade. Black currants, the essence of blackberries, crushed rocks, gravely minerality and charcoal all emerge from this incredible, full-bodied, massive wine thatÂs still backward and tight. Brought up in 80% new barrels, forget bottles for 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 2-3 decades. Bravo! JD
