Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers complex aromas of both red and black fruits interwoven with notes of black olive, pencil shavings, toasted oak and tobacco. A smooth, supple palate shows layered flavors of blackberry, blueberry, and plum. Grainy tannins add depth and structure to a long, integrated finish.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific value and is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, and the rest Petite Sirah. It has a Bordeaux-ish bouquet of new saddle leather, cedarwood, tobacco leaf, and smoky black fruits as well as medium body, plenty of fruit, sweet tannins, and a good finish. It’s not going to make old bones, but it has serious character, and I’d happily drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.

Wine Enthusiast

Floral aromas of violet and cherry blossom drop into rich black-cherry and cocoa tones on the nose of this widely available bottling. The palate is juicy in black cherry and blackberry flavors, with accents of oak and cracked pepper, all framed by a chalky texture.
