This full-bodied, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon begins with notes of cardamom and cinnamon on the nose. Flavors of blueberry, blackcurrant, and blackberry are beautifully layered on the palate and lead into a unique, subtle hint of cumin. The finish is accented with flavors of mocha and is refined by the smooth French oak.

This offers a wide swath of plum, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors, laced with red licorice details and coated with sweet toast notes. A light bramble edge at the very end keeps this honest. Drink now through 2022.
90 Pts – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and offers intense blackcurrants and crushed blackberries scents with suggestions of dried Provence herbs, cedar and pencil lead plus a hint of chargrill. Medium-bodied and packed with youthful, crunchy black fruits, it has an approachable structure of ripe, soft tannins and finishes with a refreshing herbal lift.
