Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish.
Wine EnthusiastSoftened with the addition of 25% Merlot, this wine offers a combination of power with grace. Touches of tar, petrol and rocky mineral start this off on the nose. It's shows robust and tightly grained tannins on the palate, with a bold shock of blue fruit and cinnamon.
