The 2015 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely stunning wine. It begins with aromatics of ripe blackberries, cassis, pencil lead, spring florals, spices and hints of smoke and sweet toasted oak all taking shape beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a full body, backed by beautifully polished tannins making for a fabulous mouthfeel. It continues to impress with its excellent overall structure, depth and gorgeous opluent texture which leads up to the long spice-tinged finish. This is already showing incredibly well and also possesses the characteristics to age for quite some time. A simply sensational job by winemaker Jeff Ames, who has taken over the wine making duties at Tierra Roja for Linda Neal.
