Complex, velvety and bold, the 2016 Cherryblock delivers a great deal of intricacy and sophistication. The wine fills the glass with deep purple and ruby highlights, followed by intense, concentrated aromas of blackberry, vanilla and baking spices. Waves of rich black fruit wash over the palate, with complex layers of cedar and tobacco. The tannins from this vintage were more intense than usual due to the smaller crop size, leading us to blend in a little more Merlot than is typical. The finish is framed by full soft tannins and lingering notes of herbs and spice. This wine is drinking well in its youth, but will improve over the next 10+ years.

Medium to deep ruby, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cherryblock Vineyard is intensely scented of cassis, baked black plum, blueberry coulis and red cherry preserves with touches of allspice, incense, cedar, dried leaves and warm earth plus a streak of graphite. The palate is medium to full-bodied with still youthfully wound fruit, a firm, grainy texture and juicy freshness to lift the long finish. 1,210 cases produced.

Slightly high-pitched, with cherry and red licorice notes holding sway, backed by light violet and singed vanilla hints. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,210 cases made.
