The 2015 Immortal Estate Slope Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a dramatic, isolated, rugged hillside vineyard located between Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley, and St. Helena of Napa Valley. Previously known as the Hidden Ridge Vineyard, its name was changed in 2016 when the property was purchased by the new team, which includes Timothy Martin and Randy Nichols as well as Justin Verlander/Kate Upton who invested in the property in 2019. The wine is dense, ripe and powerful, an effusive vortex of blackberry, toast, brown sugar, allspice, cassis, dark chocolate, earl grey tea, mint, anise, sugar cookie, chai, and tarragon. The palate is massive, but the fruit is sweet, supple, and creamy. The 2015 Slope has been cellared by the winery before release and is now ready to enjoy.
