Joel Gott 815 Cabernet Sauvignon
Joel Gott's 815 Cabernet Sauvignon has inviting aromas of bright red fruit, black cherry and blackberry, with touches of vanilla, brown sugar and clove. The wine opens with dark, concentrated fruit flavours, followed by velvety tannins on the mid-palate, and notes of baked spice and cedar. The finish is textured, with a touch of sweetness that makes this style of Cabernet, very Californian.
815 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects what each appellation gives to the wine. Napa Valley lends complexity and Sonoma adds a touch of spice to the blend. Mendocino fruit gives the wine its dark colour, rich, ripe berry flavours and tannins. Fruit from the cooler, windy Monterey appellation produces smaller, more concentrated fruit clusters and the warmer Paso Robles appellation offers fruit-forward notes and riper tannins. Rounding out the blend, Lodi fruit is characterised by rich flavour and soft texture. They source fruit from these varied regions throughout California to create an elegant, balanced wine.

Tastes & Tones
California is the largest and most important wine region in the USA. It accounts for the southern two-thirds (850 miles) of the country's west coast. (Oregon and Washington make up the rest.) The state also spans almost ten degrees of latitude. With mountains, valleys, plains and plateaux, California's topography is as complex as its climate, offering winegrowers a bewildering choice of terroir.
