Winery Notes:

Our 2016 Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and inviting. Dark red in color,

it begins with mouthwatering aromas of black cherry, anise, violet and cassis. The palate is
plush and well-structured showing notes of red fruits, dark plum and a touch of nutmeg.
The palate’s firm structure and polished tannins are complemented by lingering hints of
vanilla on the finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a very savory and quite compelling Cabernet, starting with aromas of black pepper, tar, dried olive and yet also a bright fresh boysenberry kick. The palate is framed by lavish, silky tannins that envelop flavors of cassis, black cherry and baking spice, with continued layers of Sichuan peppercorn and plum arising into the finish.

Wine SpectatorRich and broad-shouldered, with ample minerality to the dried cherry and spiced cherry flavors. Lithe midpalate, with a savory push that extends into the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,446 cases made.
