Vaso is the newest wine from Dana Estates and is an incredible wine, considering the pedigree of their estate vineyards which goes into this offering with Philippe Melka as the head of winemaking. While their single vineyard Cabernets are $500+ per bottle, this is a great way to be able to be enjoy their offerings now. Aromatically generous, the 2015 Vaso Cabernet Sauvignon exudes fragrances of plum, sage, and cassis with hints of warm spices. Flavors of dark cherry entice the front palate as the hillside fruit expression takes over, fusing flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate across the supple yet structured palate. Ripe strawberry and crème brûlée linger on the finish. Lush and approachable now, this wine will continue to soften and develop over the next five to ten years.
