Winemaker Notes

The lower yields provided great depth of flavor and concentration. This wine starts out with an intense, beautiful dark ruby color and aromas of black cherry, boysenberry and spicy red plum. It is another example of an exceptional year from the Napa Valley. Rich, ripe and full-bodied on the palate with overtones of blueberries and cassis. The wine is showing well for a youngster with ripe tannins and hints of blackberry, mocha, chocolate and wisps of tobacco and vanilla on the finish.

Jeb Dunnuck
In the same mold as the 2014 only slightly deeper, more concentrated, and backward, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers loads of blue fruits, cedar, lead pencil, and scorched earth aromatics, full-bodied richness, and building tannin. As with a lot of 2015s, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of black cherries, warm blackberries, black plums and licorice with touches of cedar chest, Indian spices and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, rich, opulent and full-on seductive with its plush tannins, layered ripe fruits and exotic spices, it finishes long and perfumed.

By 1998 Kevin Carriker wanted to make wine on his own and focus solely on Cabernet Sauvignon. A friend of his, Merus winemaker Mark Herold, told him of a small vineyard in Coombsville (south/eastern Napa) that had the characteristics he was seeking. It took a couple more years to realize his dream and in 2001 he was able, with the help of Mark, to put everything together and make his first Cabernet Sauvignon. This, and the subsequent years of Kobalt, mark the culmination of untraditional education and desire to produce fine wine. The current production of Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon is twenty barrels.

From vineyard to table, Winemaker Mark Herold, Ph.D. has incredible wealth of experience and an in-depth, scientific knowledge of the wine business. A true renaissance artisan with a healthy dose of accomplished scientist, Mark’s background is storied in successfully developing new, highly esteemed wine estates, as well as reinvigorating established wineries. Making wine and advising both larger institutional wineries, such as his work with Joseph Phelps Vineyards, along with his successful efforts at boutique wine properties, such as Harris Estate and Hestan Vineyards, provide Mark with the unique ability to assess the specialized needs of both large and small wineries.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
