2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Farmstead
75% neutral, 25% new French oak
"Cassis, black cherry, violets, and dried herbs showcase the classic aromas of this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is bright and fruit forward with cassis and layered red and blue fruits. Soft and juicy on entry and has a supple midpalate and soft long, juicy tannins on the finish. This wine rewards cellaring for up to ten years." - Tim Wilson
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
