The 2016 Helms vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits balance, intensity, and precision of the vintage. Aroma: Ripe cherries and blackberries mixed with hints of dark chocolate, violet, sage, and baking spice. Flavor: The wine is rich and creamy echoing the aroma with flavors of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate, dried herbs, and floral hints. The tannins fine grained and seamlessly frame the wine from entry to finish. While delicious now, the wine will gracefully build in complexity as it ages.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample to be bottled in summer 2018, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard has a very deep purple-black color and youthfully muted note of crushed black plums and blackberries, yeast extract, beef drippings and fragrant earth with touches of pencil shavings and wild thyme. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with vibrant black fruit and savory notions, framed by firm, grainy tannins and impressive freshness, finishing long and on a minerally note.
