Winemaker Notes

The aromas on this wine are captivating! The warmer vintage leads with warmer tones on the nose - Black rose, a bit of Earl Grey, mahogany with a hint of dried herb and a Winter potpourri. Black licorice and Morello cherry come at you from the secondary aromas coupled with a piney, forest floor undertone.The palate continues the assault of aromas and flavors - graphite, crushed rock, bittersweet chocolate frame a core of macerated blue and black berries. When the blue and black fruit dissipate on the palate the structure on this wine is crunchy and gravelly, reflective of the soils in which the vines are planted.

Currants and blackberries and hints of walnuts and spices. Lavender and rosemary. Full-bodied, layered and so beautiful. Great tension and brightness. Crushed stones. A pure cabernet sauvignon. Great definition. Drink or hold.

Of the three top Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Olmo is the most classic expression of Cabernet and offers Pauillac-like notes of black cherry, cassis, lead pencil shavings, espresso roast, and gravelly minerality. It’s full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, and will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and shine for 20-25 years or more.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

This 100% varietal wine is fresh and inviting in its nose of exotic spice and blackberry bramble. A dusty texture of soft supple tannin is interwoven effortlessly in dark chocolate, caramel, violet and crushed rock. This wine is structured to age but also well worth enjoying now.

Editors' Choice

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Olmo (Black Label) is scented of cedar, rose, dusty earth and incense over a core of warm red and black currants, blackberry compote and anise plus a touch of Mediterranean herbs. Medium to full-bodied and very firm, taut and muscular in the mouth, there is loads going on here, but this needs time! Give it 3-4 years at least, and drink it over the next 15+.

Rating: 94+

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Smooth and harmonious, with a graceful texture that lets the dried herb, dark berry, cedar and gravelly earth flavors display their qualities. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

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 wines. 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.
