Even better, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard is brilliant all the way, sporting a saturated purple/plum color, a huge nose of blackberries, currants, scorched earth, graphite, and cedarwood, full-bodied richness, great intensity, and a deep, dense, concentrated style. It needs 7-8 years of cellaring but is a classic, structured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to have 2+ decades of longevity. Bravo.

 

RP93  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Displaying a deep purple-black color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk offers up aromas of black cherries, cassis and plums with hints of earth, cedar and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very firm, tight, coiled and muscular. This is still very youthful and really needs 3-4 years in bottle to show its stuff.

Rating: 93+

 

WS93  Wine Spectator

Alluring, with blueberry, açaí berry and plum compote flavors, infused with lively anise and apple wood notes along the way. Fleshy, but with a very solid graphite spine imparting length and drive to the finish. Drink now through 2030.

 

Winemaker Notes

Tomahawk Vineyard is the pinnacle of the Chimney Rock estate. Comprised of a small group of vines which were planted in 2002, Tomahawk consistently produces intense, massively complex fruit. The ensuing wines are truly world-class, compelling, powerful and elegant with a remarkably lengthy finish.
