“The 2016 Fisticuffs is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet with a touch of Merlot, Petite Sirah and Petite Verdot. Aromas of rose petal, spice, and dark chocolate complement a mouth coating palate of vine ripened blackberry, black cherry and baked raspberry. The tannins are firm yet subtle and expansive. A nice lingering acidity keep the palate fresh and slowly yields to sweet mocha and candied nuts on the finish.”
Conditioned for 22 months in French oak, this classic Napa Valley Cabernet was built from a collection of carefully chosen vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley. The composition of each growing site offers a picturesque interpretation of the well-rounded vintage and Napa Valley terroir. The wine is beautifully complex, supple in texture and displays tremendous length. It’s such a fantastic value that the mere 600 cases produced won’t be enough to satisfy demand for long.
