TASTING NOTE:

Plummy richness carries through this generous, succulent cabernet, its time in new oak barrels smoothing the tannins into the dark, delicious fruit. The flavors are simple and pure, with lovely depth. Ready to pour with filet mignon.

-Wine & Spirits, 92 pts

 

Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic wine from this estate that gives up hints of spicy oak as well as cassis fruits, medium to full body, outstanding purity of fruit, and a great finish. It’s another impeccably balanced wine from this estate.

-Jeb Dunnuck, 91 pts

 

This well-made wine offers an experience of supple, smooth and hearty dark fruit, with a moderate amount of toasted oak. Blended with 13% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Franc, it is earthy and robust in sage, dried herb and violet.

-Wine Enthusiast, 91 pts

 

A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep purple-black in color and scented of warm cassis, baked plums and black cherry compote with hints of tar, sautéed herbs and tilled soil. The palate is full-bodied, with a good solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and just enough freshness to support the muscular fruit, finishing on a juicy note. 4,000 cases produced.

-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 pts

 

This offers a wealth of ripe, redder fruit with plums and mulberries on the nose and palate. The texture is supple to start and then firms up through the redcurrant-flavored finish.

-James Suckling, 90 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

The wine opens with abundant dark fruit on the nose such as plum, blackberry, and cherries, with a touch of leather and graphite. On the mouth it starts with lively acidity that brings a freshness to the wine, then it evolves on soft tannins and a very velvety texture—already showing great! There is a lot of tension and drinkability with this wine at release so it can be enjoyed immediately. This wine sets the standard for high-quality Napa Cabernets and will age beautifully for the next 15 years.
