Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$99.99

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is dense, pliant and wonderfully expressive... the 2015 packs a good bit of punch. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, sage, mint, and rose petal overtones all add to the wine's precision and nuance. In 2015, Forman took in fruit from Thorevilos, which he co-manages with David Abreu, but ultimately decided to add that juice to the Cabernet Sauvignon rather than bottle it separately. Dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec round out the blend. This is one of the classiest wines of the vintage. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Tight but classy. After an hour or so the 2015 Forman started opening up a bit. Leather and tobacco. Mid weight but with an intensity that sustains for minutes after a sip. Delicious.

Forman’s 2015 has really shut down, which is is so atypical for this vintage. I won’t be opening another bottle anytime soon. What a wine. So pure, so classic and so gorgeous...Tasted during our St. Helena & Conn Valley Vinous Learn masterclass. 96+

Meh. Overrated given the price. I expected a lot more. Perhaps it's not ready for prime time? Have one more. Will hold for a while.

The last wine was 2016. This is ‘15 and very intense rich dark fruit. The tasting and cave experience is excellent. Hard to get in. We carry at Capitol Cellars so they invited us in. Very good experience

Difficult year but wonderful effort. Lush red fruit flavor. With lingering mid pallet flavors. A touch of minerality. Real deal

A nice juicy Cali cab. Lots of dark fruit and berry nose. Lots of time left on this one.
