94pts Jeb Dunnuck

The medium-bodied, more elegant 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville (Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) reveals a nuanced bouquet of black raspberries, red cassis, graphite, violets, and toasted spices. It’s not a blockbuster, but it has a terrific sense of elegance and purity as well as balance.

Aromas of spices and walnuts with dark-berry and currant character. Eucalyptus, too. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a subtle, fruity finish. Beautiful now. Enjoy.

 

Winemaker Notes

Textural richness defines our deeply concentrated, dark-fruited Oakville cabernet sauvignon, wrapping blackberry, black plum and blueberry flavors in warm baking spices and toasty oak and sending them across the silky palate structured by firm, fine-grained, tannins.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 7% Petite Verdot, 4% Merlot
