This is the best ever from here with iodine, currant bush, blackberries and blackcurrants. Pine needles, too. Full-bodied, firm and silky. Driven and vertical. Needs time to come around, but already a beauty. Drink after 2022.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes sashaying out of the glass with floral notes of violets and lilacs over a core of warm cassis, baked black cherries and mulberries plus touches of cedar and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise with lovely fine-grained tannins and well-knit freshness supporting the bold black fruits, finishing long and fragrant. Terrific value!
