    Description

    Futo Red 2015
    Bottle (12)

    The Taxedout Cellar. A collection of CA Cult gems. Pristine in every way and stored perfectly in an offsite wine facility.

    "The 2015 Futo is gorgeous, but it is also the tightest of the four wines in the range. The purity of the fruit is striking, but the tannins are also quite imposing within the context of this wine. A month ago, the 2015 was much more voluptuous, today the aromatic intensity and structural profile of the Franc and Petit Verdot are quite evident. Even so, the 2015 is a fabulous wine with a very bright future. The blend is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot." (96+ pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Dec. 2017)

    "This wine comes from Futo's Oakville estate: six separate vineyard sites at 250 to 500 feet in elevation planted on decomposed sandstone and shale from ancient uplifted seabed. The first vintage was 2004. The 2015 Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with opulent crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote notes with touches of redcurrant jelly, eucalyptus, dried rose petals and Chinese five spice plus a waft of tree bark. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, the voluptuous black fruits are beautifully framed by firm, velvety tannins and a lively line, finishing very long with compelling exotic spice layers. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered; 602 cases were produced." (97 pts. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Dec. 2018)


    Estimate: $2,000 - $2,600.
