You could say the 2015 was the culmination of previous years combined. The fruit concentration and bold structure from sunny and warm harvests paired with the fruit-forward voluptuousness of a cooler year made for an enticing vintage.
The mid-palate dominated structure of this wine holds firmly to the palate while saturated aromas of blackberries simmering in a reduction melt away this taster’s ability to concentrate.
Little rainfall and a warm summer yielded a vintage of small and exceptional berries. Incredibly concentrated, this expansive wine is not to be taken lightly.
This Cabernet Sauvignon lures the taster with dark cherries, toasted oak and coconut all lovingly encased in a smooth fondant icing. The tannins are rich, grainy and lingering.
The perfect replacement for an after-dinner coffee, the 2010 Gaston’s olfactory mélange mimics a French-pressed brew, down to the lingering aromatic titillation of coffee grounds, chicory and fresh blackberries.
Reminiscent of picking berries in a forest, this wine features aromas of ripe fruit and earthy woodland floor. The wine’s mid-palate has a distinct weightiness that carries through to a lingering finish of broad, silky tannins.
This vintage exhibits a commanding presence, beginning with a powerful attack and following through to a restrained and lengthy finish.
At its core, the 2007 vintage offers a rich, round mouthfeel that plays a supporting role to the exuberant aromas of ripe red plum.
After a three-year hiatus from making Gaston, the 2005 vintage marked a welcome return. The fruit from this vintage comes from the Tennis Court parcel; the soil features tailings from the cave, giving the grapes a very rocky foundation.
Vibrant expressions of new leather, cherry pit and blueberries greet the palate with this wine, followed by a touch of clove spice at the end.
Compact and lean, this premier release of the Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon marked the beginning of a study in single varietal expression.
