Joel Gott Wines 815 California Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, California

A pretty color of dark ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, black plums, sweet cherries, oak, raisins, dried figs, cloves, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, light earth, mocha, coffee and tobacco.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, chocolates, peppercorn, spices, earth and light vegetables.

Medium plus in length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a nice Cabernet from California. Showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Spicy with lots of cloves, that gives it an aftertaste that I did not like.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with brisket.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins.

13.9% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.
