"Only the fifth release of this Cabernet Sauvignon in the seventeenth vintage of John Anthony Vineyards. The ONE continues to command great balance in aroma, flavor and structure. It is both powerful and subtle. The hillside character exhibits an intensity of fruit and spice with a layered texture that is this wine’s hallmark. The 2015 vintage produced very low yields with remarkable quality and the ONE is that epitome. Aromas show themselves immediately and evolve quickly from big fruit to flowers and spices. Both sweet and savory, there is expansive black cherry, cassis and wild berries on the palate that linger with hints of fresh Herbs de Provence, sweet tobacco and graphite. The tannins and acid indicate its ability to cellar age for decades, but it drinks exquisitely now with suggested decanting. I am very proud of the continued evolution of the ONE Cabernet Sauvignon program and hope to continue its releases from my favorite vineyards in the vintages that provide me the opportunity. This is one of my best made wines to date and I encourage you to enjoy its evolution now, and with patience, in the years to come."
