Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up exuberant notions of blackcurrant pastilles, blackberry compote and stewed red plums with touches of kirsch, potpourri, fragrant earth and cigar box. Full-bodied and opulently fruited in the mouth, the powerful flavors are well framed by firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. Drink through 2045.

Solid, featuring a direct beam of cassis and raspberry reduction flavors, flanked by anise, apple wood and bramble notes. A loamy echo chimes through the rich, polished finish.
