The hot and dry conditions of the 2015 growing season, coinciding with the fourth of what would become a six-year-long drought in California, resulted in an uncharacteristically low crop yield of exceptionally high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Early season above-average temperatures gave way to a consistently warm and long summer, leading to an earlier-than-usual ripening of the grapes. This, along with very little rain throughout the growing season, allowed the grape skins to mature and thicken, resulting in wines of great depth, concentration, smooth tannins, and moderate acidity, making the wine ideal for aging.

The 2015 ToyMaker Cabernet Sauvignon was made by winemaker Martha McClellan from 100% Diamond Mountain District fruit. It was barrel-fermented and aged for 28 months in all new French oak, with an additional 24 months of bottle aging. This wine is exquisitely balanced, providing a lush burst of ripe red fruit on the front palate, velvety tannins that unfold across the midpalate revealing exceptional structure and depth, and a dense and lasting finish.
