Jeb Dunnuck

Flirting with perfection, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement has a Léoville Las Case-like regalness in its crème de cassis, graphite, camphor, charcoal, and gravelly minerality. Full-bodied, incredibly concentrated, yet pure, structured, and on point, this sensational Cabernet Sauvignon needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 2+ decades in cold cellars.

Vinous

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément is dense, creamy and voluptuous, with the silky contours and all the raciness that is typical of Oakville. Succulent red cherry, chocolate, mocha, plum, incense and white chocolate infuse this vivid, densely packed Cabernet. Sadly, yields are down 33%.

Wine Advocate

Displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement has crushed black currants and black plums with touches of dark chocolate, espresso, spice box and sautéed herbs. Full-on expressive and packed with cassis and spicy flavor layers, with finely grained tannins and great freshness, it finishes very long on an earthy note. 250 cases were made. Drink through 2030.

Wine Spectator

This is loamy in feel, with dark fig, black currant and plum fruit melded with notes of savory, alder and roasted sage. The long finish lets the fruit play out while picking up an extra tug of dark earth. Dense but defined, so let this unwind fully in the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2035.
