Station Plaza Wine
Opens in about 10 min with vanilla, and a soft mellow spice.
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sentinel contains a 1% splash of Petit Verdot and was aged 19 months in 57% new French oak and 2% in new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with a beautiful perfume of candied violets, chocolate box and camphor over a core of cassis, blackberry tart and wild blueberries plus hints of cedar chest and lavender. Full, firm and taut, it has layers of black fruit and minty flavors with a long, savory finish. 7,142 cases produced." (93+ pts.)
"Fresh blackcurrants, dark plums, mulberries and cassis. Medium-bodied with crunchy fruit and acidity, grainy tannins and a medium-long finish. Drink in 2022." (93 pts.)
Broad and rich in feel, featuring warmed cassis and plum sauce flavors, inlaid with a swath of tobacco and backed by a loamy hint on the dense, toasty finish. Delivers more oomph than purity in the end. Drink now through 2025. 7,142 cases made.
