2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Image

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes: This elegant 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon will be a crowd favorite!  Deep garnet-purple layers show in this exquisite blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Aromatically, this wine is very complex and intense, with scents of boysenberry, cassis, blueberries, spice box, vanilla, and cocoa powder. This wine is medium bodied with balanced acidity that enhances the red fruit character.  It has a lingering finish of red fruit jam, cedar, and a mineral finish. The tannins are firm but the finish is smooth. This is a beautiful wine to enjoy now, but it will age extremely well for many years.

Vintage: 2016 was considered, for many, a near-perfect vintage in Napa, and I couldn’t agree more. The season started a little bit earlier than average years.  Weather conditions throughout the year were perfect for achieving beautiful vine growth, proper ripeness, and development of flavors and tannins. Mild temperatures during the summer and some warm days in September and October helped to extend the hanging time of the fruit on the vines, allowing for perfect ripeness.
