ALTITUDE 2292

2015


“The 2015 Altitude 2292 is a terrific Bordeaux blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot that spent 21 months in 33% new French oak. It has classic Cab notes of blackcurrants, smoke tobacco, lead pencil, and graphite. Possessing medium to full body, a balanced, layered texture, good acidity, and a great finish, it’s a smoking good Bordeaux blend from this mountain terroir.”

<“An addition to the range, the 2015 Altitude 2292 is a Bordeaux field blend from the top of Coastview. Dried herbs, smoke, leather and game give the 2015 a somewhat wild feel. Vivid and aromatically intense, the 2015 has a lot to offer. It is another seriously beautiful wine from Big Basin. The blend is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, with the Cabernet Franc adding a distinctly exotic quality throughout.” strong>92 points- Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Coming from a mountain vineyard nearly 2,300 feet above the eastern Salinas Valley, this blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot offers a taste of a unique terroir. Aromas of red cherry, oregano and cigar box lead into a complex palate of tangy black-plum skin and dried herbs, all framed by strong acid and a light but taut structure. ”
