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, 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.
