Producer notes: "100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Whereas the 2013 vintage was marked by its tannin profile and 2014 by its transparency of underlying terroir, 2015 is marked by the generosity of fruit. Yields were down dramatically in 2015. First, cooler than normal weather during flowering and fruit set limited the berries per cluster. Second, dehydration at the end of the growing season due to the high temperatures further reduced cluster weights. As a result, for The Grain, quantities were about 55% of normal but the fruit we did get was fantastic. This site has always provided wines with great structure and tension. With vine age, we have been getting more intense savory notes, and in 2015 we have a perfect balance with the intense fruit forward profile the growing season provided. 96 cases produced."

Not yet reviewed; 2014 vintage rated 95 points by James Suckling: "Lots of blueberry and stone character on the nose and palate. Violets, too. Full-bodied with very fine tannins. Long and complete. A cool and refined Napa cabernet. Drink in 2020 but already beautiful."
