Dark ruby in the glass, it exhibits aromas of black currant, cassis and a hint of smoky tobacco. Notes of black cherry, plum, vanilla and mocha are present on the medium-bodied palate. Its smooth mouth-feel and soft tannins make this a wine perfect for drinking now or will age gracefully over the next 5-7 years.

Production Notes

The 2016 vintage extends a run of exceptional years for Cabernet Sauvignon to five in a row for the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring and summer led to an earlier than average budbreak and ultimately another early start to harvest. Temperatures remained relatively mild with warmer days that helped bring the grapes to their optimal maturity. Low rainfall this year limited the crop volume once again but led to incredible concentration and quality.
