Our 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.

Wine AdvocateThe 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. 38,000 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorSolid, with a tarry-edged core of black currant and dark cherry fruit that melds nicely with light alder and tobacco notes on the finish. Fresh acidity keeps this driving along. Drink now through 2024. 38,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastCedar, spice and dried herb hit the nose of this robust, densely concentrated red wine that is full bodied and unabashedly ripe in style. Black currant and blackberry take on a jammy quality that will appeal to fans of rich roundedness.
