Winemaker Notes:

Vibrant purple-black hue with expressive aromas of fresh cherry pie, blackberry, currant and hints of spice. The wine is medium- to full-bodied with a bright, fresh palate brimming with black cherry, fresh baked pie crust, sweet vanilla and currant. Supple tannins carry through to a lingering finish with layers of delicious fruit.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc) offers plenty of charm in its dark currant and black raspberry fruits, iron, and herbal aromas and flavors. This fleshy, rich, medium to full-bodied effort has tons of fruit, good balance, and plenty of character. It should keep for a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorWarm blueberry, açaí berry and blackberry puree flavors form the core. Polished in feel, with melted licorice and sweet tobacco accents hanging on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 10,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateBlended of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notions of pure cassis and crushed plums with tobacco, sage and forest floor in the background. Medium-bodied, it has great vivacity and a plush texture with a peppery finish.
