“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Ex Libris is a good, ripe and well-balanced bottle of young cabernet. The wine comes in at fourteen percent octane and offers up a nicely old school nose of red and black cherries, cigar wrapper, a touch of spice elements (mostly cardamom), good soil signature and a discreet framing of cedary oak.

“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Ex Libris is a good, ripe and well-balanced bottle of young cabernet. The wine comes in at fourteen percent octane and offers up a nicely old school nose of red and black cherries, cigar wrapper, a touch of spice elements (mostly cardamom), good soil signature and a discreet framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied, nascently complex and beautifully balanced, with fine depth at the core, lovely focus and grip and a long, poised and ripely tannic finish. This is fine cabernet for the cellar and it should prove to be an excellent drink with a decade’s worth of bottle age. Fine juice.”

"Stylistically, Ex-Libris Cabernet Sauvignon leads with its beautiful, plummy/cassis fruit, but there is also a bit more restraint and structure (and Bordeaux spirit) than your typical domestic Cab. On the palate there are cassis, earth, sandalwood and cigar box notes with a beautiful backbone of acidity and tannin to balance. Ex-Libris is a latin term for "from the library," and was the guiding principal for this proprietary project. Through connections with some top wineries in Washington, we were able to go into their vaults and secure some superlative lots of wine from top vineyards. The goal of the project is to produce wines that drink like $30-$40 bottles, but sell for under $20.

For most vintages, this Bordeaux blend contains all five of the main varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. The wine is sourced from several top sites in Washington including the Sheridan Vineyard (made famous by Andrew Will’s single vineyard bottling), Champoux, Goose Ridge and Coyote. The wine is aged for 22 months in predominantly French oak, with about 15% new."~Distributor Notes

There is also earth, licorice, and just a gentle framing of wood to balance out the palate.
