2015 FARM Cabernet Sauvignon Premiere Napa Valley Auction
A fine feather in the cap for any collector whose interest is peaked by the rare and unusual. Only 5 cases were produced of this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon from what was, in itself, an exceptional vintage with one of the earliest harvest seasons on record. 5 cases for all the world to share? Rare isn’t a strong enough word! This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from hidden gems across the Oak Knoll District, advantaged by a longer growing season than most in the challenging 2015 vintage. Perfectly ripe, rich dark berries were brought to heel in a wine that expresses John Anthony’s philosophy that “great wines are grown in the farmer’s shadow.” Aged for 20 months in new French oak for a smooth, enveloping wine built to impress at every layer. There are never enough bottles to go around, when it comes to the prizes from Premier Napa Valley Auction, where lots can sell for well above $2000/bottle. Swift action is required to lay hands on this increasingly endangered wine!
