The blend for the 2015 Creative Impulse is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, all from DuBrul Vineyard. Sparkling ruby-purple color with a multifaceted bouquet of cassis, black cherry, gravel, dark chocolate, thyme, mint, and nutmeg. Very complex on the palate with notes of cassis, black plum, smoldering incense, tobacco, mint, espresso, and herbes de Provence. Beautifully balanced with slightly firm tannins and refreshing acidity. Very long length with notes of cassis, gravel, and aged cigar tobacco. Properly cellared, this wine will gracefully evolve for 15+ years and should reach maturity in 8-10 years.
International Wine Report—
The ‘Creative Impulse’ is a spectacular blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon with the remainder Merlot all sourced from the DuBrul Vineyard. The nose is highly complex and very pretty with red rose petals that mingle with the black tea, licorice and blackberry compote with nice herbal tones that sing aromatically. The palate show wonderful balance and poise delivering rich dark fruit and sagebrush flavors that mingle with mocha undertones. While delightful now, this elegant wine will have a very long time in the cellar. Drink 2019-2035.
