Wine Advocate Review
Made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep garnet-purple in color and displays expressive notions of baked plums, warm cassis and licorice with hints of bay leaves and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy black fruit and earthy sparks, finishing chewy. Drink 2019-2030.
This wine appears rich, opaque ruby in the glass, with matching rich aromas of creme de cassis, fresh espresso, vanilla bean, and ripe blackberry. Toasty, spicy notes of cedar come through as well. On the palate, the wine offers flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, and cocoa powder, and has a soft yet firm tannic structure, with subtly gripping tannins that beg for grilled meats. The finish is long and expressive, with spiced fruit flavors lingering endlessly.
