2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
"Inviting with a vibrant purple hue and a complexity of varietal aromas of blackberry, plum, cocoa nibs, green coffee, and fennel. On the palate, layered oak components of vanilla and cedar balance tenderly with soft tannins and the mouthwatering acidity that give this classic a fresh, lingering finish." - Justin Carr
An early bud break, one of the longest flowering periods in years, and a long growing season produced a vintage that shines in quality. Spring started fast and an early bloom was met with a dip in temperature, wind and rains, which slowed the development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of extremely well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest in August.
