Description

Magnum of 92 point 2015 Skellenger Lane Cabernet Sauvignon 

" pliant, supple and very nicely balanced. Dark and powerful, but with a good bit of overall brightness, the Skellenger Lane should drink well for another decade or so." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Sticky tannin and a thickness of blackberry, sage and herb are the defining characteristics of this full-bodied youthful wine from a great site and great vintage. The hearty presence of fruit and weight give it a density and length on the palate." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"...offers a classic Bordeaux bouquet of blackcurrants, lead pencil, graphite, and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied, fresh and focused on the palate, with good acidity and building tannin, it's a classic, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to age gracefully." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
