Dana Estates Onda Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"Containing 3% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot, bottled in May 2017, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Onda has a deep garnet-purple color and expressive nose of cassis, fresh plums and mulberries with touches of spice cake, violets and wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, fine and refreshing in the mouth, it delivers loads of open-knit fruit and spice notions with great length." - The Wine Advocate, 93 points.
"This is a beautiful Onda with a blackberry and hazelnut character with some mushroom and floral undertones. Even some minerality and hot stones. Wet cement, too. A gorgeous wine. One of the best Onda. Drink or hold." - James Suckling, 96 points.
Aromas of fresh black cherry and plum, layered with dark chocolate, lavender, baking spice, and crushed rock. The palate is silky with ripe fruit all framed by precise tannins. Sourced primarily from hillside vineyards the wine is structured and full bodied, but with exquisite balance of intense flavors of cassis, violets and herbs, creamy texture and freshness.
Small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot bring depth and nuance. While inviting now, this wine will grow in complexity as flavors marry with time. Enjoy now through 2025 and beyond.
