This 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a distinctly layered wine with notes of ripe dark plum, black currant and sage. Rich and full-bodied, this superbly balanced wine has an expansive mid-palate and an exceptionally long finish. Already displaying a refined profile, this vintage’s well-structured tannins and ample acidity will allow it to age for more than a decade.
94pts Wine Enthusiast "This is a powerhouse wine, surprisingly soft and supple on the palate, with firm, integrated tannins and hearty oak. Cedar, pencil shavings and sweet tobacco provide savory complexity on the midpalate, accenting a core of concentrated red currant and plum. The finish is a mix of black pepper and dark chocolate."
93pts James Suckling "A silky and harmonious cabernet with currants, light chocolate and spice. Medium to full body, lightly round tannins and a flavorful finish. Real Napa cabernet at a good price."
92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petite Sirah, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot and 1% Malbec, aged in 30% new French and American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up bold notions of cassis, black cherries and spice box with hints of cedar and fragrant earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with loads of muscular fruit accented by a notable but not overwhelming oaky presence, going to a long, layered finish."
The grapes were carefully harvested and destemmed, then transferred to upright tanks for a three to four-day cold soak. Each lot was aged and evaluated separately, with the final blend taking place in February 2018. In total, the wine was aged for 21 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels (30% new).
Grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon were carefully selected from several of our premium Napa Valley vineyards, including Sun Lake, Cypress Ranch and Sage Canyon. The 2016 vintage offers intense aromatics with outstanding concentration, structure and balance.
